Saraki Reveals APC’s Alleged Plans to Rig Elections


The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has joined the throng of those accusing the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the postponement of the 2019 elections.

Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, February 19, Saraki accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of cooking-up the postponement to ensure low turnup of Nigerians at the polls.

The Senate President who made the claim during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja, said that the low turnout will enable APC rig the election.

However, the he urged Nigerians to go out en masse and vote in order to prevent APC from rigging the polls.

According to him: “We have three more days to go. I want to appeal to Nigerians, do not let them frustrate you. When there is a low turnout, they can rig, but if you come out to vote, they cannot rig.

“INEC, we know that they do not want you to hold that election on Saturday, but we want you to hold that election on Saturday. The Nollywood APC meeting Yesterday was because they don’t want elections on Saturday, but we want elections on Saturday, Nigerians want elections on Saturday, the world wants elections on Saturday.

“As they say, when your time has come, your time has come, President Atiku Abubakar, your time has come!”
