The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state has raised an alarm over the politically motivated deployment of Mr Adeyinka Fasiu Ayinla as the state commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).

In a statement sent to journalists on Thursday, August 20 by its spokesman, Chris Osa Nehikhare, the party said it totally rejects the deployment of Mr Ayinla to the state in the run-up to the polls, scheduled for Saturday, September.

They insist that the deployment of a new NSCDC commandant in Edo state by Minister Aregbesola is suspicious.

statement read: “Once again, the Edo PDP restates its commitment to a peaceful, free and fair governorship election on September 19, 2020.

“We are, however, taken aback by the resolve of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to win the election by all means foul!

“The latest of such evil plot of the APC to win the election through foul and unfair means is the redeployment of Mr Ayinla as the commandant of the NSCDC.

“The posting by the minister of interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, is politically motivated and a plot to rig the governorship election.”

The PDP spokesman also accused the new state commandant of the NSCDC as lackey of a leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and has worked closely with him in the past.

PDP however called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the situation.
