2019 Election: Federal Government says PDP plots to Truncate Process


The Federal Government of Nigeria through the ministry of Information and Culture has accused the People Democratic Party (PDP) of plotting to truncate the process of the ongoing 2019 general election.

In a statement issued by Information minister, Alhaji Laid Mohammed on Monday, the Federal Government accused PDP of ''laying the groundwork for a constitutional crisis by unleashing its talking heads'' on the public space.

The following are the statements of the minister in parts:

''The Federal Government has strongly warned against ongoing plans by
the desperate opposition to truncate the electoral process and render
the Feb. 23rd elections inconclusive, in order for them to trigger a
constitutional crisis and push for an interim government.

By announcing the result and saying they have won the Feb. 23rd election, the PDP is deliberately seeking to confuse the polity and lay the foundation for rejecting the outcome if, when INEC eventually
announces the result, the party does not win.

This confirms what we said in a series of pre-election press conferences, that the PDP – realizing it cannot win a free and fair
election – will do everything possible to scuttle the polls, failing which it will proceed to the next stage, which is to discredit theentire electoral process, including the result, with the ultimate aim of precipitating a constitutional crisis and pushing for an interim government.''
