Ex-Cross River REC picks up APC governorship form in Bayelsa
the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP says the manifestation of Frankland Briyia, the Erstwhile Cross River State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, as an All Progressives Congress, APC governorship aspirant in Bayelsa state, while still in office, is a direct confirmation that the APC used its members to write figures for President Muhammadu Buhari in the February presidential election.
The party in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan notes that Briyia’s governorship ambition on the platform of the APC, exposed INEC as a partisan electoral umpire under the watch of Professor Mahmood Yakubu.
The PDP states that the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari did not sanction Briyia, even after he brazenly announced his ambition right within.
The INEC facility, portrays APC’s embedded interests in the commission, which manifested in the manipulation of processes related to the presidential elections.
The PDP invites Nigerians to note that INEC, in a recent statement, denied receiving any resignation letter from Briyia at the time he announced his governorship ambition.
The PDP therefore calls on President Buhari to come out clean on the real reason he failed to sanction the cross river rec in line with the law.
