Speaker of the House of Representatives , Mr Yakubu Dogara , in Abuja on Wednesday , said those who rigged during the 2019 general elections would not go unpunished .
He said the country was becoming “ a bad reference point in bad behaviour ” in the comity of nations .
Dogara spoke at the 85 th Emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party at the national secretariat of the party .
The Speaker , who won his reelection into the House of Representatives , called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct the Saturday ’s supplementary elections with professionalism .
He said , “What has happened ( the 2019 elections ) is pure evil . Our consolation as members of this party is that no evil doer has ever escaped punishment.
“Elections are done all over the world . Elections are conducted in other Africa countries and at no time have we heard of these inconclusive elections .”
Also , the National Chairman of the party , Uche Secondus said the PDP would win five out of the six states where supplementary elections would hold this Saturday .
He said , “We will appoint a committee to do postmortem on the elections , but this will be after the supplementary elections holding on Saturday.”
The party ’s vice presidential candidate , Mr Peter Obi , said INEC had its problems , but added that those who should be blamed were those who directed the commission on what to do .
The President of the Senate , Bukola Saraki commended members of the party for “remaining steadfast ,” stressing that “ what happened to the party at the polls was a tragedy for Nigeria as a country . ”
