By Abdulwahab Muhammad, Bauchi 

Bauchi-The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State has accused  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of planning to rig the Saturday Presidential and National Assembly elections in the state  for all its candidates including the presidential flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar.

The Chairman of the Media and Publicity Committee of APC Campaign Council in the state, Sabo Mohammed, who addressed journalists at a media briefing in Bauchi, alleged that the PDP in the state in it's desperation to win the election at all cost has resorted to cause chaos during election by using their supporters to intimidate voters especially in APC strongholds in the state so that the election will be cancelled and they will have the upper hand.

He alleged that PDP in the state had recruited fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to work with the genuine ones divert results during the elections, adding that the party has already assembled computers and Information Communication Technology (ICT) experts to hack the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) server.

"Some of the antics that the ruling PDP in the state is deploying to rig the election, which have already intimated our people is that they are trying to woo the masses through the food and relief materials that was given by the federal government to cushion the effects of flood that happened about seven months back in the state, this is to able them know the potential voters of Bauchi state.However, we have already educated our people to collect the relief materials given to them by the government because it rightfully belongs to them, but they should vote the APC"

"The second antics they are employing now is that they have started threatening traditional institutions in the state that they should not listen to the APC.The PDP have told them to frustrate us and do everything within their powers to ensure that they have the upper hand, but unfortunately for them that antics has not worked because we have already enlightened our people and we have told the traditional leaders to allow people to vote according to their conscience"

"We have informed our supporters about this, any corps members they suspect to be fake, should be reported to the security personnel for proper identification in order to fish out the fake ones recruited for the criminal jobs.We are determined to ensure that every vote counted in Bauchi state. We have communicated to the relevant agencies and our party structure to be at alert and steadfast to ensure that the rule of law is further entrenched" he said 

The Chairman said that the APC is ready to accept the outcome of the election if people are allowed to vote according to their conscience and the election is conducted in a free and fair manner, adding that anything short of that will be resisted and reported to the appropriate electoral authorities.
