The People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State says it has uncovered plans by the state government to secretly conduct Local Government polls.

In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, John Akans, the party alleged that sensitive materials for the polls have already been deployed across the state for the exercise.

It says "The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has received with consternation very credible information on illegal strategies being implemented right now at the offices of the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC), under the direction of its Chairman,  Miskoom Fabian Ntung in conjunction with the Plateau State Government and the APC to conduct the much-awaited Local Government election in near secrecy.

"In this never-heard-of back door arrangement, the PLASIEC Chairman is secretly preparing for an election to take place across the local government areas as some sensitive materials have already been transported to some identified local government areas.

"As a party that  believes in the rule of Law, and that also represents the interest of majority voters on the Plateau, PDP is sending very strong words of caution to PLASIEC,  the state government and the APC that any act of illegality and injustice will face appropriate resistance from the people of Plateau.

"The people will no longer allow themselves to be oppressed by ungodly minds which are filled with ungodly values and  by an architect of injustice in leadership position.

"PDP wants to make it clear that anything short of the Rule of Law and due process from the APC led PLASIEC in the conduct of local government election will not only be vehemently rejected but will be fought to a standstill."
