The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has frowned at the performance of the National Peace Committee, NPC, saying the committee was powerless under President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged desperate government.
It also said such committee will only function within an ambit of what the sitting government desires.
PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said this when grilled on the position of the peace committee under the chairmanship of Gen. Abdullsalam Abubakar, over the persistent electoral controversies, while briefing newsmen in Abuja today. He said the APC government is going against the dictates of the committee in an attempt to remain in power.
Ologbondiyan also cautioned the leadership of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, against alleged attempts to tamper with and further cancel already tallied and declared results in 14 more local government areas in the Bauchi governorship election.
He warned that such alleged unlawful alterations will attract dire consequences. The party said it is determined to reclaim its mandate during the supplementary elections in the five states where it has highest number of votes.
