PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has asked the military to resist any attempt to rig the rerun polls scheduled for Saturday.

Secondus said the military is “highly regarded” and it is their responsibility to guard their names jealously.

Ike Abonyi, Media aide to Secondus, quoted the PDP national chairman as saying this at the national emergency council meeting of the party.

The chairman said his party is certain of victory in at least five of the six states slated for supplementary polls.

Secondus asked Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, should remember that he would be held responsible for his actions.

Also speaking at the event, Peter Obi, PDP vice-presidential candidate, said action should be taken against those allegedly directing INEC and security agencies to manipulate elections.

Obi said the worst form of corruption is election rigging because the process of coming into power is far more important that what is done thereafter.

On his part, Senate President Bukola Saraki urged party members not to despair as their victory will be restored by the court.
