candidate for the December 5 election in Bayelsa State.
It would also be recalled that PDP had prior to this period raised an

election. Having failed in this aspect, the party later perfected another
plan to induce innocent voters with fake naira and dollar notes that are
already in circulation.

agencies to step into the matter and bring the culprits to book.
