The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council (PDPPCC), Kogi State chapter, has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is not prepared and capable of conducting a free, fair and credible elections in the state.
It accused INEC of releasing ballot papers and original result sheets to the All Progressive Congress in the state.
INEC has however, denied the allegation.
The spokesman of the PDPPCC in Kogi State, Austin Okai made the allegation, in a statement, on Monday.
“We have it on good authority that Kogi INEC had given out ballot papers to the APC in the state through the state governor”, he alleged.
Okai claimed that information reaching the body showed that most aspirants on the platform of APC were already in possession of ballot papers.
“The PDPPCC therefore, wish to state that the INEC must show that it has the capacity to conduct a free, fair and credible poll because the people of Kogi state have lost confidence in the electoral body.
“The name of INEC Kogi state is already in the mud, and the electoral body would need to come out clean,” he said.
Reacting, Head, Voters Education and Publicity of INEC in Kogi State, Ahmed Biambo said the allegation is baseless and unfounded and as such, should be discarded.
He explained that all the sensitive materials distributed across the state were all retrieved and had been kept in the custody of Central Bank of Nigeria in Kogi State.
