APC, PDP trade words over allegation to hack INEC’s servers in Bauchi

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state for its plan to rig polls through engaging the services of fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members and hacking of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The spokesperson of the APC governorship candidate, Air Marshal Safdique Abubakar (retd), who made the allegation at a press conference at the party’s Secretariat in Bauchi, said APC has uncovered a number of plans by PDP to rig the elections.

Sabo stated that some of the antics that the ruling PDP in the state plans to use to rig the election include the distribution of relief materials given by the federal government seven months ago to flood victims.

“We have uncovered several undemocratic antics that the PDP in Bauchi State is putting in place to rig the elections, but we are determined to ensure that every vote counts. We have communicated to the relevant agencies and our party structure to be alert and steadfast to ensure that the rule of law is further entrenched.

“We are aware that they have assembled ICT experts to hack INEC’s servers and the fake corps members that are planning to engage would work with the genuine ones during the election to divert results.”

In a swift reaction, the Director, Media and Publicity in the PDP campaign council in Bauchi, Yayanuwa Zainabari debunked the allegation by the APC that the PDP in the state was working to rig elections, saying that the PDP already has the support of the masses because it has fulfilled all it’s campaign promises it made to the people of the state when it came into power.
