The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has insisted that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC must disqualify the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC President Muhammadu Buhari in 16 February polls.
Secondus made the call for Buhari’s disqualification yesterday at the Pa Oruta Ngele Township Stadium, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, venue of the party’s presidential campaign flag-off in the state.
He described as shameful, the incidents in Kano on Thursday during the APC presidential campaign “where governors and other mercenaries from neighboring countries especially Niger Republic attended the rally and openly campaigned for the president.”
Secondus alleged that the mammoth crowd as witnessed at the Sani Abacha township stadium, venue of Thursday’s APC presidential rally were not Nigerians but invited foreigners from neighboring counties like Niger and Chad.
“Now on behalf of our great party, let me warn INEC, that what we witnessed yesterday at Buhari’s rally in Kano is the worse that even happened since the history of this country where mercenaries and government officers like governors and President of other countries came in their numbers from Niger Republic and Chad.
“They came with monies and mercenaries to influence elections in Nigeria. All the papers have reported it.
“Now we ask, INEC, the unbiased umpire to disqualify Buhari for bringing mercenaries to influence elections in Nigeria.
“INEC better be warned, you cannot rig this election, we have won these elections, every where we have been, we have attracted more youth and women than APC.
Alhaji Atiku on his side, appealed to people of the state not only to vote for him come 16 February polls but other PDP candidates.

He commended Governor Umahi for his achievements, commitment in the course of the Party and well reminded PDP faithfuls to defend their votes at the poll.
