Peoples Democratic Party has frowned on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) decision to extend the deadline for party primaries by six days.

PDP spokesperson, Mr Debo Ologungba, said INEC has changed the goalpost in the middle of the game, stressing that certainty of elections is the bedrock of democracy.

He was speaking at the Velodrome of the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, where the PDP is scheduled to hold its special National Convention on Saturday, saying the consequences will be grave for the country.

He noted with concern that the bedrock of democracy is certainty of elections and the fact that the rules are clear to every participant, adding that INEC cannot shift the goalpost in the middle of the game.
