Ahead of Saturday’s governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nasarawa State, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the ailing Resident Electoral Commissioner of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Danyaya.

Also, the party has raised alarm over plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the State to brand already purchased Hilux vehicles as INEC’s duty vehicles during Saturday’s elections with the sole aim of gaining easy access into sensitive areas to intimidate electorate and manipulate results.

Addressing journalists yesterday, the Director Media and Publicity of the PDP Governorship Campaign Organisation, Chief Philip Dada, called on the INEC Chairman, Prof Attahiru Jega and the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, to urgently bring their instrument of operations to bear on these ‘worrisome developments’.
