The Senate President and Director-General of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was behind the postponement of last Saturday’s general elections.
Saraki claimed that the APC wants a low turnout, so that it can prevent Nigerians from turning out en masse to vote in the rescheduled February 23, general elections.
The Senate President, who made the claim during the PDP’s emergency National Executive Council, NEC, meeting, in Abuja, said that a low turnout of voters, will enable the APC rig the rescheduled elections.
He however, urged Nigerians to come out en masse and vote, in order to prevent the APC from rigging the polls.
According to Saraki: “We have four 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 do not 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!”
