Opposition parties fault FG over rigging allegation

Opposition political parties on the platform of the Coalition of United Political Parties on Monday faulted a statement attributed to the Minister of Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Mohammed , that they are planning to rig the forthcoming general elections.

The parties also said the minister ’ s claim that they are lobbying countries to discredit the outcome of the election was meant to scare away members of the international community from monitoring the elections.

The CUPP’ s reaction was contained in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja by its first national spokesperson , Imo Ugochinyere .

Ugochinyere said contrary to the minister ’ s claim , the ruling All Progressives Congress was the one deploying machinery to rig the elections.

He said , “ Who is attempting to buy votes through the fraudulent TraderMoni which has failed ? Who is plotting to import voters from neighbouring countries which has been exposed ? Who is deploying security agencies particularly the military through the hurriedly put together Operation Python Dance III to intimidate voters?

“ All these have failed, hence like they purchased order with which the Chief Justice of Nigeria was unlawfully forced out of office , they have purchased a Magistrate Court order to arrest key opposition leaders including Senator Bukola Saraki, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere , Senator Ben Murray Bruce, Uche Secondus and 16 other leaders of the opposition.

“ Let it be known to the Presidency that any election result which is not a reflection of the will of the Nigerian people will be rejected and that the real winner of the election will form a government of Nigeria , by Nigerians and for Nigerians.

“ The statement is a failed attempt by Alhaji Lai Mohammed and his paymasters to scare the international community away from monitoring the election as the gatekeepers of developing democracies . ”

Ugochinyere said the government was in panic mode because officials have realised that the figures are not looking good for the ruling party .

He added , “ Their allegations fall flat in the face and they now know that Nigerians now take it as a patriotic service to the nation to send this government out of the Presidential Villa so that a new government can get Nigeria working again .

“The claims of Alhaji Lai Mohammed are bare faced lies , signs of a guilty conscience and a red herring to deceive the ordinary people and distract the mind of the international community but which will not achieve the set purpose .

    stumbleupon every day. It’s always helpful to read through articles
    from other writers and use a little something from other websites.

  2. Its just like you read my mind! You appear to comprehend
    a lot about this, such as you wrote the guide within it or
    anything. I feel which you could use a few % to drive your message house
    somewhat, but as an alternative to that, this can be wonderful blog.
