The Peoples Democratic Party has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to use Kogi and Bayelsa elections to demonstrate its commitment to free, fair and credible elections without being influenced or manipulated.

The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, KOLA OLOGBONDIYAN, made this known in Abuja while reacting to INEC’s deployment of extra National Commissioners and Resident Electoral Commissioners from other states to Kogi and Bayelsa for the November 16 governorship elections.

OLOGBONDIYAN said the PDP already had a due diligence report on each of the deployed commissioners, saying that while some are of clean records in their previous responsibilities, there are others who have questionable characters and fared far below expectations in their responsibilities.

The PDP in the statement cautioned INEC Chairman, Professor, MAHMOOD YAKUBU, to note that the deployment of officials with known integrity issues was capable of triggering crisis and jeopardising the credibility of the electoral process.
