Great Tension As INEC Set To Postpone The Feb. 23 Elections, After Powerful Order From Above

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has reported plans by President Muhammadu Buhari, to ‘use’ the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to postpone the forthcoming elections in Borno, Adamawa, and Kaduna States.

Atiku in a statement signed by his Campaign Spokesman, Phrank Shaibu, alleged that the plot was hatched at a closed-door meeting, between the Federal Government and the three State Governors, in Abuja.

He warned that the move to hold staggered elections would not be accepted.

He revealed that the action, if carried out, would enable the APC-led government get enough time to rig the elections in those States.

“Anything short of a simultaneous holding of the scheduled elections across the country, on Saturday, is not acceptable to us”, the former Vice President said.

He stressed that the reports available to the PDP, reflect the desperation of the APC to win at all cost, especially the said States, and some others, using security reasons as a pretext for postponement of the polls.

“The deal cut at a meeting with some Northern Governors and Service Chiefs, in the Presidential Villa, in Abuja, is simple: The FG will shift elections in the Northern States of Borno, Adamawa, and Kaduna, citing security concerns, to provide the APC the opportunity to use Security Agents to massively rig polls in those States, at a later date”, the statement revealed.

“The implication of the plot, is that President Buhari, for all his sweet words on ensuring free and fair elections, and avoiding unethical measures to win at all costs, is ready to do anything just to “capture” Borno, Adamawa, Kaduna, and other States, using security reasons as a pretext”, he said

Atiku disclosed that his demand for a strict adherence, ahead of the general elections, is in the interest of Nigerians and the growth of democracy.

“The PDP would not lose any sleep over the ignoble deal, since the battle to rescue Nigeria from incompetence and bad leadership, will be fought by the people themselves, and not by some desperate APC Governors, and or President Buhari.”
