APC accuses PDP of producing fake PVCs ahead of Bayelsa poll

All Progressives Congress has claimed that it has uncovered fake Permanent Voters’ Cards allegedly manufactured in large scale by the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of the November 16, Bayelsa governorship election.

In a statement signed by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, in Abuja on Friday, APC alleged that the fake PVCs have been code-named “Biafra Cards” by the PDP.

According to Nabena, Bayelsa state chapter of PDP has begun large scale manufacturing of fake PVCs.

Nabena called on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security, anti-corruption and other relevant agencies to intervene to ensure a hitch-free election in the state.

He urged the electorate to resist alleged plots by the PDP-led government to foist governorship candidate on Bayelsans through rigging, vote-buying and violence.

The APC chieftain called on INEC to rise up to the occasion and ensure free, fair and credible poll.

Reacting, the state Publicity Secretary the PDP, Mr Mackbere Osom dismissed the allegation, urging the public to disregard it, insisting that the APC was not ready to contest the governorship election.

Osom said APC had shown clearly that it was not ready by boycotting the governorship debate saying it was only making statements to distract the PDP.
