The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has warned that it would not accept anything less than the conduct of cred­ible, free and fair general elections over alleged alliance between Independent Electoral Commission (INEC chairman), Professor Attahiru Jega, and All Progressives Congress (APC).

National Publicity Secre­tary of the ruling party, Olisa Metuh, in a statement at the weekend claimed that the alliance be­tween the APC and Profes­sor Jega informed the main opposition party’s “feverish fixation and huge interest in his stay in office.”

He noted that “the APC has continued to fabricate stories and show undue in­terest on Jega,” adding, “such raise a lot of questions for the opposition and the INEC chairman.”

The statement further reads in part:

“Undoubtedly, the fren­zy, hysteria and spate with which the APC has been inventing stories regarding Prof. Jega’s stay in office even when nothing suggests that such was on the table, raise a lot of issues.

“We ask, is there any un­derlining issue or arrange­ment between APC and Prof. Jega which the opposition is hell-bent to protect, inform­ing its anxiety and appre­hension towards his stay in office?

“While it is noted that the APC is a party of ‘one week, one lie’ we in the PDP look beneath the surface to the deeper issues propelling the lies.

“We therefore challenge the APC to come out clean and tell Nigerians the real reason behind their false alarms and uncontrolled nervousness regarding Jega ahead of the 2015 general elections.

“Finally, we wish to re­mind the leadership of INEC that Nigerians are monitor­ing its activities and the se­ries of unfolding political events ahead of the elections, and will not accept anything less than the conduct of credible, free and fair gen­eral elections come March 28 and April 11, 2015,” the party said.
