The All Progressives Congress in Imo State has raised the alarm over what it described as a plot by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party to embark on massive rigging of next Saturday?s governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.


Director-General, Rochas Okorocha Campaign Organisation, Mr. Iheukwumere Alaribe, who spoke to our correspondent in Owerri on Tuesday, said the APC was aware of the PDP?s plan to manipulate the electoral process with the assistance of some military personnel during the elections.

He said, ?We know that, just like it did during the presidential and National Assembly elections, the PDP has decided to use fake soldiers to achieve its devious motives on Saturday.

?This time, they want to make sure that no electoral materials get to the designated polling centres. They have been bringing thugs into Imo State. If you go to the rural communities right now, you will find strange people there.?

Alaribe noted that on Sunday, Catholic churches in many of the communities warned members of their congregations to avoid hanging out at polling booths after casting their votes on Saturday.

He recalled that there were irregularities during the last elections, especially in Ohaji-Egbema, Isu, Oru-East, Isiala-Mbaino and Oguta Local Government Areas, where ballot boxes and other electoral materials were allegedly carted away from the polling booths and non registered people used as ad-hoc staff by the Independent National Electoral Commission in Imo.

He added that the APC was determined to ensure the PDP did not perpetrate such electoral malpractices on Saturday.

Alaribe stated, ?If what happened last time repeats itself during the governorship elections, there will be casualties in Imo State.?

The APC campaign director added that not less than 20 members of the PDP had defected to the ruling party.

All efforts to speak with the Director of Media for Imo PDP, Chief Enyinnaya Onuegbu, yielded no positive results.
