APC accuses PDP members of buying PVCS in Yobe

APC accuses PDP members of buying PVCS
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

Chairman Yobe State Executive Committee (SEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Adamu Chilariye has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of illegally buying the permanent voter’s card ( PVC) of unsuspecting members of the public.

He made the accusation on Thursday at a press briefing in Damaturu. He 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.

However, Chilariye advised the general public to be careful not to fall into the  politicians’ trap.

The chairman  disassociated 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.”, the chairman said.
