The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has charged Nigerian voters to troop out to their various polling booths to check their names as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) displays voters register at all polling units across the country from today, Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Prince Secondus said that the desire to rescue Nigeria from the clueless APC government would be meaningless if everything pertaining to voting is not sorted out ahead.

According to a statement from his Media Office signed by his Media Adviser, Ike Abonyi, the PDP National Chairman said the essence of the four days display as stipulated by the electoral act is to ensure that no voter is disenfranchised and this the first step to avoid it

He said that cross checking and confirming the details ahead of the election is a mechanism put in place to reduce attempts by the electoral umpires to manipulate the system by saying that names of voters are not available.

“By cross checking and re-cross checking, the voters wittingly would have begun the battle to frustrate rigging of the election,” he said.

Prince Secondus urged voters who notice issues with their particulars to cry out loudly immediately by going to the electoral centers to complain for rectification.

He said that part of the rigging strategy of the APC working in agreement with some INEC staff is to doctor voter’s lists in the opponent’s strong holds to reduce their electoral advantage.

The National Chairman said that the unanimity by majority of Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling APC should be chased out of our political lives would have no meaning if we are not ready with the necessary weapon (our PVC) to do that.

“Please note that if you have a PVC and your name is not on the register, you are as good as a person who has gone into a contest he did not register for and expecting a positive result,” he said.

Prince Secondus said that Nigerian voters should not take anything for granted if their desire to rescue our democracy is to be realised.

“If your team is going into a match you are sure you are better than your opponent and you are not sure of the neutrality of the referee, you need to play well win fair and square and block any room for manipulation,” he said.

He reminded the electorates to always bear in mind that for the 2019 election what is at stake is not just democracy and the country, but their valued individual rights and interests.

The PDP National Chairman charged INEC to ensure that the registers are not only displayed at the polling booths but that the correct ones to be used for the election are the ones on display.
