While addressing a press conference in Abuja, the Director of Media and Publicity, PDP presidential campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega had meetings with top leaders of the APC in Dubai to perfect plans on how to rig the 2015 elections.
But the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, said on Thursday that the leadership of the party and its governors had confidence in the Prof. Jega leadership of the electoral commission.
Mu’azu’s briefing which held at the headquarters of the party, had in attendance some PDP governors, led by the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State.
The position of PDP and its governors as given by Mu’azu differed from Fani-Kayode’s position.
Mu’azu, curiously, differed on this at the press briefing, saying that the postponement of the elections would enable Jega and his team to distribute the remaining voter cards.
He said even President Goodluck Jonathan had expressed confidence in the chairman of the commission and that there was no way the party would disagree with the President’s position.
He said, “You asked if the party has confidence in Jega? My answer is not far-fetched. The President stated during his media chat last night (Wednesday) that he has confidence in Jega.
“We also have confidence in Jega and that he and his team will conduct free, fair and transparent elections.”
