The party National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan revealed this recently at a news conference on the party’s resolutions from Thursday’s 90th National Executive Committee meeting.
According to him, since elections that are not credible will only endanger our democracy, Nigeria must look to engage the civil societies on electoral reforms.
He added that electronic election is the answer in Nigeria because it negates the tendency of hoodlums hijacking results and changing them.
His words, “For us in the PDP, we believe that until there are improvements in our electoral laws, our elections are not going to be credible and this is going to endanger our democracy.
“So, the PDP has resolved to constitute a committee that will work in tandem with NASS members elected on the platform of our party and other interested parties as well to form broad-based committee that will work with our legislators.
“We are also going to engage the civil societies on electoral reforms.”
“As a party we have seen that the issue of electoral frauds, abuses, hijack of electoral process can only be redeemed if every Nigerian agrees in unison that we must amend the rules.
“This is why the PDP has agreed to work in concert with CSOs, faith-based organisations, community leaders to entrench a law in the system in which the people can truly elect their representatives.”
“As you know even the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is contemplating going for electronic election.
“If you look at the election that was held in Edo where results were transferred on INEC portal from the units, the base of the election, to the collation centre, that negated and ruled out the tendency of hoodlums hijacking results and changing them.
“By first quarter of next year, we would have been able to begin the pilot scheme.”
