The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of buying the permanent voter card (PVC) in Yobe state.
Adamu Chilariye, chairman, Yobe state executive committee (SEC) of the APC, made the allegation on Thursday at a press briefing in Damaturu.
He said the state EXCO of the APC was notified of the development.
“The PDP political office holders in Yobe Zone B have been using surrogates to purchase voter’s cards within Potiskum town at the cost of N5000 per PVC,” Chilariye said.
He said the APC has lodged complaints with the security agencies against the illegal act.
Chilariye advised the public to be careful not to fall into the politicians’ trap.
The chairman also distanced SEC from some political aspirants in APC who had begun to “deceive members” of the party that they were endorsed by the SEC.
“The SEC wishes to state that it has no anointed aspirant and will only support the candidate that emerges as the party’s flag bearer during primaries,” he said.
