The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it has moved very far ahead of petty rigging allegations.
Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to INEC chairman said this in reaction to allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The PDP in a statement on Sunday alleged that the electoral body intends to hand over electoral materials for the Anambra governorship election, to Governor Uzodinma by storing them in Imo state.
PDP noted that storing the election materials amount to rigging the election before its conduct.
Chief Press Secretary to INEC chairman who responded to the allegation noted that INEC will not be distracted by familiar but unfounded allegations about an imaginary plot to rig the Anambra Governorship election.
He stated that any political party or individual with evidence of plot to rig the election should make it public rather than make spurious allegations.
“I can say without any fear of contradiction that no court of law has annulled any governorship election conducted by the Mahmood Yakubu-led Commission since its inauguration in December 2015 for rigging,” he said.
