Plateau LG polls are APC appointments not election: PDP

Plateau LG polls are APC appointments not election

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described Saturday’s local government elections in Plateau as an All Progressives Congress (APC) appointment.

John Akans, Plateau PDP Publicity Secretary, said in Jos on Sunday that “what was done were not elections but clearly selections and appointment of APC members.”

Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC) chairman, Fabian Ntung, announced Sunday that APC won all 17 chairmanship and 325 councillorship seats at the elections.

PLASIEC had earlier barred the PDP from participating in the elections, citing a judgment some members of the party secured against the leadership of PDP in the state.

The PDP challenged its exclusion at the elections at the High Court and the Appeal Court but lost at both levels.

Mr Akans said the PDP’s next line of action would be made known on Monday.
