APC PCC opposes cancellation of presidential poll


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not listen to calls for cancellation of presidential and national assembly elections but instead to continue with the process of violation and announcement of results.

Speaking at a crowded press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, the APC PCC Spokesperson, Mr Dele Alake, said those who were calling for the cancellation of the Presidential election results wanted to abort Nigeria’s democracy, stressing that the Commission was duty bound to bring the exercise to its logical conclusion.

Alake who was flanked at the event by other members of the APC PCC Media Team like Festus Keyamo, Femi Fani-Kayode, Abike Dabiri among others, insisted that APC had won the Presidential election and therefore condemned the call by other political parties led by the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and new kids on the block Labour Party for INEC to cancel the election.

Alake who berated PDP and LP for calling on INEC to cancel the elections, saying that it is too late to stop the process now, also lashed out at the former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the press statement he released on Monday where the elder statesman faulted INEC on the way it has handled the election so far.

Alake who is the Media Adviser to APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu also alleged that some people are calling on the youth to embark on protest, warning the youth not to listen to such calls, adding that they should be wary of another war in Nigeria because war is not good to anybody.
