The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has threatened to take legal action against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and others over unsubstantiated and libellous allegations against its chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.
The PDP had accused Prof. Yakubu of rigging the February 25, Presidential and National Assembly elections and is also planning to rig the March 18, governorship and state assembly elections.
Rotimi Lawrence Oyekanmi who is the chief press secretary to INEC chairman made the statement on the night of Friday, March 10, in Abuja.
He said: “Interestingly, the PDP did not provide any convincing evidence to back up all the spurious allegations it listed as Prof. Yakubu’s ‘infractions’.
“To be sure, the PDP failed to provide any evidence to substantiate the allegations of Yakubu’s ‘brazen violation of the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022, INEC’s Regulations and Guidelines, and criminal manipulation and alteration of election results.”
