The All Progressives Congress (APC) has been accused by Buba Galadima, a spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, of using the military to intimidate voters and rig the 2019 elections.
Galadima leveled the accusation on Wednesday, March 20, during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, Independent reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the spokesman said the events in Rivers state were evidence of the intimidation.
He said: “It is not an accusation; the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court.
“I saw it on television where they were going to houses, killing people.”
Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier been accused by the Rivers state chapter of the APC, of collaborating with the state governor, Nyesom Wike, to announce ‘concocted’ results for the elections in the state.
The APC praised the military, which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the other hand, had accused of interference in the elections. The accusation was denied by the military.
Galadima further stated that the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, had won the election. He said there were records to prove this.
He said: “They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials. That is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law.”
He added: “Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?”
Galadima also accused the ruling party of paying highly placed Nigerians to beg Abubakar not to take the matter to court.
