Ahead of the 2023 elections, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised an alarm over the amendment of the Electoral Act to accommodate the ambitions of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, who alleged that the APC was scheming with its leadership in the National Assembly over the matter.
It further detailed how the APC was mounting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over an alteration in its already released 2023 Election Timetable and Schedule of Activities.
Ologunagba stated that this situation would jeopardize the 2023 elections and Nigerians must resist such attacks on the country’s democracy.
He said: “Our party has information about how the APC has been mounting pressure on INEC to push forward the already scheduled dates for the 2023 general elections.
“The PDP vehemently rejects this plot by the APC which amounts to shifting the goal post in the middle of the game and cautions INEC to resist such heinous design against our democracy
