Electoral PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari’s decision not to accent on the amended electoral act passed by the National Assembly has been described as a welcome development by Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN).

The party equally faulted a threat by the coalition of united political parties (CUPP) to boycott the 2019 general election if the President’s decline to sign the electoral act into law.

According to a statement made available to Journalists in Sokoto on Sunday, and signed by the party’s National Secretary, Alhaji Abubakar Abdullahi Sokoto, the party posited that there was nothing to worry about President Buhari’s decision.

“The Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) is in total support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to withhold accent on the amended electoral act,” The party stated.

According to the statement: “One wonders where was the coalition of political parties (CUPP) when the leadership of the National Assembly went for unnecessary and unwarranted long vacation forgetting that there was an electoral act waiting for President urgent attention.

“Closing National Assembly for that long period of time indicates that, the actions are deliberate attempt to either cause confusion or cast aspersion to the person of president Muhammadu Buhari or his government.”

The party, however, called on Nigerians to be careful and watchful on the antics and actions of some politicians and political organizations who are planning to cause confusion as it becomes glaring clear that they will lose the forthcoming elections.

UPN also distanced itself from the activities of CUPP, stating that the coalition is nothing but a willing tool to be used by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as partners in the act of propaganda and may be used for some dirty political actions, threat to boycott 2019 election may be part of it.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) is not among parties that endorsed Atiku Abubakar as its presidential candidate, our candidate remains Alhaji Auwal Mohammad Wakil,” Abdullahi Sokoto who is also the Director General of the party’s Presidential Campaign added.
