BENIN—ALL Progressives Volunteers Group, a pressure group in the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that it would institute a legal action against the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega and the commission to restrain them from further shifting the dates of the general elections.

Chairman of the group, Mr. Olusegun Bamgbose,who disclosed this in Benin, Edo State, in a chat with newsmen, said that any further postponement of the elections would be unconstitutional, hence the need to stop INEC and Jega from doing so.

He said: “We know that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has a hidden agenda to truncate democracy in Nigeria. So, it is our collective responsibility as citizens to resist them. From what we gathered, they are so desperate to truncate our nascent democracy. On our part, the APC Volunteers Group will make sure that PDP does not remain in power beyond May 29.”

He accused the Presidency of being behind the postponement of the elections from February to March to avoid imminent defeat and vowed that there would be no further shift of the polls.
