BREAKING: PDP Pulls out of Imo Local government Elections

Below is a Press statement from the Imo state Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP;

The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party Imo State chapter has been drawn to the purported announcement in some media houses by the Imo State Independent Electoral Commission (ISIEC) stating that there will be local government council election on Saturday, 25th August 2018.

The Peoples Democratic Party Imo State Chapter having authoritatively reviewed the antecedence of the APC government under Governor Rochas Okorocha with regard to local government council elections since he assumed office as the governor of Imo State from 2011 till date, and the “ADVICE” given by the Supreme Court of Nigeria in the matter between Imo State government and ALGON Imo State, that both parties should maintain the status quo pending the determination of the suit at the Supreme Court, we hereby state categorically, that the PDP Imo State Chapter shall not participate in the purported local government council election coming up on Saturday, 25th August 2018, as it is not only fraudulent, but an affront to Imo electorates.

Furthermore, the PDP Imo State Chapter, having also viewed the recent activities of ISIEC with regard to the said election, sees ISIEC as not independent and as such, being an appendage of the APC government under Governor Rochas Okorocha cannot really conduct any election talk less of a credible, free and fair election in Imo State.

The party therefore call on all teaming members of PDP, Imo State and the Imo electorate to ignore the purported Saturday, 25th August, 2018 local government council election as our great party is not and shall not be part of the so- called local government council election.
