- Former minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe, has warned against election rigging in 2019
- Orubebe claimed that the 2015 governorship election was rigged but such won't happen in 2019
- According to him, what happened in Ekiti and some other states was a stolen victory
Godsday Orubebe, the former minister of Niger Delta affairs and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who faulted the conduct of the 2015 elections, has warned against rigging in the 2019 general elections.
Orubebe, while speaking in an interview with Tell Magazine, said the alleged rigging in Ekiti and other governorship elections would not be allowed to be repeated in the 2019 elections.
Orubebe said: “Everybody knows what happened in Ekiti; it was a stolen victory. And so it is in some other areas. We have been talking to our people to have patience. What has been happening in those elections can’t take place in February 2019. It can’t happen.”
Recall that Orubebe stirred up controversy during the collation of the 2015 presidential election results when he allegedly attempted to disrupt the proceedings.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) reacted to the recent calls by the PDP, demanding the resignation of chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Professor Yakubu Mahmoud and the Inspector General of Police Idris Ibrahim.
