PDP accused of buying PVCs for N5000 in Yobe
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been accused by Alhaji Adamu Chilariye of illegally buying the permanent voter’s cord (PVC) of unsuspecting members of the public.
Chilariye who is the Chairman Yobe State Executive Committee (SEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made the allegation at a press briefing in Damaturu on Thursday. He also stated that the state EXCO of the APC was notified of the development.
“The PDP political office holders in Yobe Zone B have been using surrogates to purchase voter’s cards within Potiskum town at the cost of N5000 per PVC.”
He said the APC has lodged complaints with the security agencies against the illegal act. Chilariye also advised the general public to be careful not to fall into the politicians’ trap. He dissociated SEC from some political aspirants in APC who had begun to deceive members of the party that they were endorsed by the SEC.
“The SEC wishes to state that it has no anointed aspirant and will only support the candidate that emerges as the party’s flag bearer during primaries,” he said.
