The Peoples Democratic Party, has indicated interest to boycott the November 30, supplementary election for Kogi West rerun poll.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party on Saturday, indicated that the party will not be participating in the supplementary poll for the senatorial axis.
The PDP, NPC specifically mentioned that the party has not only lost interest in the electoral umpire, but also rejected the scheduled supplementary election; an indication they might not participate in it.
The statement read a part, “After a further review of the November 16 elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) notes that it is now clearer to Nigerians that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) do not want democracy to thrive in Nigeria.
“The PDP and Nigerians in general have forcefully rejected the results bandied by INEC in the elections. We also reject the proposed Kogi West Senatorial rerun election, which has already been desecrated by the manipulations in the main election.
“As long as the figures in the main election are fundamentally flawed, the proposed rerun cannot reflect the wishes of the electorate and Nigerians are wondering if it will make any sense to participate in an electoral process that is already deficient.
