President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling All Progressives Congress are planning to rig the 2019 elections in Nigeria, according to a newly formed Nigerian group.

The Forum of People’s Democratic Party – New Media Aides also known as PDP-NMA described the “persistent” refusal of President Buhari to sign the Electoral Amendment Bill as part of the APC and the President’s plot to rig the 2019 elections.

It said only a President who was not interested in free, fair and credible elections would ‘deliberately” refuse to sign the good bill.

The statement was issued on Tuesday by its Acting National PublicitySecretary, Edoko Wilson Edoko.

According to Edoko, the President and his party were already rejected by Nigerians, prompting their plot to manipulate the electoral process next year.

“First, they fought against alteration of election sequence, prompting questions as to why they were afraid of Presidential election holding separately.

“Now, they are against the Electoral Bill and the question is, what is their fear? Is it that the Electoral Bill if signed into law won’t allow for the return of bogus votes as was done for the President in
2015?

“Critical provisions of the amended Electoral Bill are capable of bringing the much needed sanity into our electoral system and only a president that is afraid of facing a free and fair election will withhold his assent to such a Bill for four times.

“This is more so that President Buhari cannot wash his hands clean of the barefaced rigging of the Ekiti and Osun States governorship elections in particular and other recent elections held in the country.

“The National Assembly must therefore act with the zeal of patriotism by overriding the President on this all-important Electoral Bill so as to save democracy in the country from this imminent destruction from the hands of a President who is desirous of holding on to power at all cost.”
