APC kicks, faults INEC over issuance of certificate of return to Diri

Sat Feb 15th, 2020 - Abuja (FCT)

The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has faulted the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) over its decision to issue Certificate of Return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in last year’s Bayelsa governorship election, Mr. Douye Diri.

APC’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, who addressed journalists in Abuja, yesterday, accused INEC of usurping judicial powers by going out of its way to declare Diri winner of the poll based on the verdict of the Supreme Court.

But the PDP has called on the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to immediately arrest Oshiomhole for questioning and prosecution over alleged incitement and sedition.
