The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to ensure early arrival of sensitive and non-sensitive election materials during the November 11, 2023 governorship polls in Kogi, Bayelsa and Imo states, in order to avoid electoral violence.
PDP National Organizing Secretary, Umar Bature, stated this at a People’s Townhall on Election Security in Abuja.
Bature also charges the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to identify perpetrators of electoral violence in the three states.
He further says if President Bola Tinubu sustained his assurance that he has no candidate in the polls, the level of violence will noticeably reduce before, during and after the polls.
