PDP slams INEC’s decision to extend deadline for party primaries

News
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has frowned on INEC’s decision to extend the deadline for party primaries by six days.
PDP spokesperson, Mr Debo Ologungba, said INEC has changed the goalpost in the middle of the game, adding that certainty of elections is the bedrock of democracy.
He was speaking at the Velodrome of the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, where the PDP is scheduled to hold its special National Convention today.
“The consequences will be grave for the country. And of course we have to look at that,” he said.
“The bedrock of democracy is certainty of elections and the fact that the rules are clear to every participant; and you cannot shift the goalpost in the middle of the game.”
