From Ayodele Samuel, Lagos
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has demanded a complete, rather than piecemeal, release of voters’ register for all the states of the federation by INEC, as required by law, on Tuesday, Jan. 13th 2015.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said it would not accept anything less than a complete release of the voters’ register under any circumstance.
‘’If on Tuesday January 13th 2015, the date INEC plans to make public the voters’ register, that of the South-west and other key states are held back, our party will reject whatever lists comes later,’’ it warned.
APC further said: ‘’Anything short of a complete release of the voters’ register will raise the suspicion that some forces are working to manipulate the register of some states where the opposition has strong followership.’’
The party said it is aware of the penetration of INEC by top agents of the PDP and the Presidency in order to manipulate the voters’ register of the entire South-western States, as well as Rivers, Kano, Imo and other key states where APC enjoys wide followership.
