APC, INEC creating illegal polling units to rig Osun election- PDP.
The Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressives Congress of conniving with Independent National Electoral Commission to create illegal polling units with the intention to rig the poll.
Addressing a press conference on Friday, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, however, said the party would dismantle all the plots of APC.
