PDP suggests that INEC follow IGP, imo
The Imo State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Sylvia Agu, should be redeployed right away, according to advice from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).

Debo Ologunagba, the party's national publicity secretary, offered the counsel in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Ologunagba demanded that Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of INEC, deploy Agu right away in response to his alleged compromise to rig the Imo governorship election on Saturday.

In response to public calls for election neutrality, the Inspector General of Police redeployed the Commissioners of Police in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi. He encouraged Yakubu to take a cue from this action.

He urged Yakubu to pay attention to the public uproar, petitions, and protests from Imo residents, political parties, and civil society organizations calling for Agu's dismissal due to her purported compromise.

In light of her suspected involvement "in the manipulation of the 2023 National and House of Assembly elections in Imo," he declared that the people of Imo could not support any electoral process in which Agu served as REC.

According to him, the best way to ensure a legitimate election, rebuild public trust in the electoral process, and prevent a crisis in the state is to redeploy Agu out of Imo.

The PDP urges the INEC Chairman to acknowledge that voter trust in the electoral process is the primary factor determining an election's integrity.

"Agu should not be involved in the conduct of the governorship election on November 11th; he has lost his integrity as REC.

"Her prolonged tenure as Imo REC is exasperating and a surefire way to spark trouble."

Ologunagba stated, "As a result, the PDP reiterates its demand that the INEC Chairman redeploy Agu out of Imo immediately in order to restore public confidence and the integrity of the electoral process."
