The All Progressive Congress (APC) said on Tuesday that it did not influence the list of Presiding Supervisory Officers (SPO) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to hold the upcoming elections of the governor of Bayelsa.

Latest Nigeria newspaper report that In a statement signed by his deputy secretary of National Advertising, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja on Tuesday, APC dismissed the accusation of the candidate for governor of the Popular Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Douye Diri, that he had influenced the list.

Jonathan Obuebite, Director of Media and Advertising for the Campaign Organization of Senator Douye Diri, asked INEC on Monday to withdraw an alleged SPO list and get new hands from institutions outside Bayelsa.

Latest Nigeria newspaper report that The baseless accusation of the PDP and its candidate for governance is part of its plan to intimidate INEC and other critical stakeholders that will be in official election service,” he said.
