Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential campaign organization, Buba Galadima, has described the February 23 election as fraud, thereby challenging President Muhammadu Buhari to swear with the Holy Quran, and the Bible if he (Buhari) truly won the election.
In an interview with newsmen, Galadima noted that Buhari replaced Ex-Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, with Tanko Muhammed because of his plots to rig the election.
He stressed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had planned with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the election in favour of Buhari.
He said, “Buhari and the APC leadership knew they were going to rig the elections, and that was why Buhari refused to sign the Electoral Act, and that was why he also suspended the former Chief Justice of the Federation, Walter Onnoghen, and replaced him with Tanko Muhammed.”
“I boldly challenge Buhari and other APC leaders to swear with the Holy Quran, and the Bible if they were sure that Buhari won that election. If they are sure that Buhari defeated Atiku, Buhari, and APC leaders should take up my challenge.”
“Buhari and APC intimidated INEC, and unfortunately instead of asserting itself INEC succumbed to the pressure from Buhari, APC hijacked both the INEC and the whole electoral process. It’s good Atiku had gone to court, and I believe that all hope is not lost for him. “It was obvious that INEC compromised.”
“The INEC Chairman, Prof. Yakubu Mahmood and his officials didn’t live up to expectations. Very unfortunately, INEC didn’t conceal its bias towards the opposition as elections were being cancelled or being declared inconclusive in places where the opposition especially PDP was leading APC.”
“ Some of the states where this evil practice was carried out include Rivers, Benue, Bauchi, Ogun, Plateau and others. INEC’s action was very shameful. It was as if INEC was working for APC.”
