The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, on Tuesday admonished President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, his Imo counterpart, Rochas Okorocha and ex- Abia Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu are stopped from attempting to rig the upcoming Anambra governorship election.
APGA said Buhari should use his good offices to ward off any electoral malpractice, stressing that the unity of Nigeria would be threatened should the above names allegedly rig the election, Dailypost reports.
The National Coordinator APGA Media Warriors Forum, Evang Chinedu Obigwe, made the call while alleging that the APC Chieftains have printed sensitive materials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ahead of the poll.
In a statement he signed, Obigwe said the arrest of some suspected APC syndicates with printed INEC sensitive materials at Grace Royal Hotel Okpuno Awka was a glaring proof thatAnambra APC has concluded plots to rig the election.
The statement reads, “I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to use his good office to nip this evil plot in the bud because failure to do so his much cherished Nigeria unity will be destroyed.
“APGA is like a religion in Anambra State, thus the reason why the people of the State are satisfied with Governor Willie Obiano’s good work in the State perhaps again the reason why they are supporting his merited second term re-election bid.
“The frequent visits of El- rufai, Rochas Okorocha and Orji Uzor Kalu, to Anambra state I believe have something to do with this rigging plot to favor Tony Nwoye.
“The people of Anambra State will ensure that no stone will be left unturned in checkmating and vehemently resisting APC rigging plot.
“This election will determine if Nigeria will remain one because no reasonable human being will like to be in a Country where the people’s democratic rights are trampled upon.
“I urge the people of the State to troop out en-mass to vote for Governor Obiano. Wait and ensure that they count your vote in order to resist rigging of any sort.”
