In a communique issued after the emergency  meeting of its National Executive Committee (NEC) in Osogbo on Wednesday, the party said in addition to circulating the VINs of the unclaimed PVCs, INEC must publicly declare invalid for the purpose of the August 9, Osun governorship election all the PVCs with the circulated VINs.
It said the circulation of the numbers of the unclaimed voters cards and the INEC’s declaration as invalid of all bearing the numbers for the Saturday election is the ‘irreducible minimal condition’ for the August 9 governorship election to be credible and transparent.
The party also warned against alleged plan by the PDP to rig the Osun election through financial inducements and by using the security agents who have been deployed to Osun State in their thousands.
“The party has received information that at a meeting held overnight in Osogbo involving top officials of the PDP and the Federal Government as well as INEC officials, a huge sum of money was earmarked for payment to key electoral officials to rig Saturday’s election in favour of the PDP.
It also said that based on credible information, the rural  farm settlements around Ile-Ife and Ilesha, among others, have been identified as areas where the 500,000 cloned cards and other PVCs illegally obtained will be used mostly on Saturday.
“We also have very credible information that  when all fails directives might be given to the EOs to allow anyone with a permanent voters’ card to cast his or her vote even when their names are not on the voters register. These are frightening and sinister scenarios which we want INEC to take note of and prevent from happening,’’ the party said.
