- The PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, says the APC would manipulate the general election if measures are not taken to prevent vote rigging
- Abubakar urges the PDP supporters to protect their votes by staying back at the polling units after casting their votes
- The presidential candidate claims the APC has turned Nigeria to the headquarter of poverty
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is planning to rig the general elections.
Atiku made the allegation on Tuesday, January 22, in Owerri, the Imo state capital, when addressing party members at a rally, The Nation reports.
The PDP presidential candidate stated that the APC would manipulate the election if measures are not taken to prevent vote rigging.
He urged his supporters to protect their votes by staying back at the polling units after casting their votes.
“APC is planning to rig the election. Please protect your votes. We have promised to restructure this country. APC is an evil party. They have turned this country as headquarter of poverty,”Atiku said.
“We are going to take over the country in the next election. Immediately after your vote, stay there and protect your vote. We want the economy to start growing again. We want you to vote PDP at all levels. Let nobody deceive you.”
Meanwhile, the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday, January 20, said President Muhammadu Buhari does not have any problem with his health and he is fit for another four years in the interest of the country.
New Telegraph reports that Osinbajo, who had an interaction with some Christian youths in Lagos, debunked the insinuation over the president’s state of health and capacity to run for another term.
He said part of the reasons why so many people, especially elite are angry and anxious is because President Buhari doesn’t share the resources of the country with them.
