All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has warned that Nigeria would boil if the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election was rigged in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The National Coordinator APGA Media Warriors Forum, Evangelist Chinedu Obigwe, on Wednesday said this in a statement made available to the press.
“Nigeria will boil if Anambra election is rigged”, the statement said stressing that the people were disappointed with the APC’s slogan ‘Change’ and the modus-operandi with which the party runs the affairs of the country, noting that the word ‘Change’ signified taboo in Anambra state.
“In Anambra the word change is a taboo because you cannot change a winning team”, he said noting that those contesting along with Governor Willie Obiano are doing so to justify all righteousness.
“You cannot change a winning team, Change is a taboo, Obiano’s excellent performance in office endeared him before Anambra electorates, thus the reason they are poised to re-elect him for a merited second term”, he said adding that the only thing that “will renew people’s confidence in Nigeria electoral system is free and fair election”.
He particularly commented on the APC’s antics noting: “As Governor Obiano is busy campaigning for his re-election, Tony Nwoye, the APC Governorship candidate is busy seeking Federal government support to rig the forthcoming November 18th election.
“For El-Rufai to shamelessly telling those that cares to listen that he was locked up in his hotel room in Anambra during the 2013 election is a political punch on himself. “In a sane society since El -Rufai is not an eligible voter in Anambra State; he has no right to move around the State on Election Day”.
“I urge Anambra electorates to see this election as a battle for the security of their future and that of their children that must be won without any electoral malpractices. Resisting rigging is Anambra electorates inalienable right. Use your right to ensure a free and fair election in the State”, he said.
