National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has stated that the postponement of the general elections did not come as a surprise to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, because the Independent of National Electoral Commission, INEC, and its officials pre-informed them before the shift was announced.
Oshiomhole made this claim at the emergency caucus meeting of the APC held in Abuja on Monday following the postponement of the elections at 2:30 am on Saturday, roughly six hours to the commencement of the polls.
“I can put my hands on the quran and swear that INEC and its officials informed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, before postponing the election. The PDP were well acquainted with the plans to move to the elections.
“This is why they did not receive the news with shock. They made us look like fools, because we were busy preparing for the elections while they were relaxing,” the former Edo State Governor said.
