“Our call comes against the backdrop of the recent seizure of a Nigerian-bound ship detained in South Africa for carrying arms and explosives. Nigerians will also recall recent arms seizures by the Nigeria Customs Service. This is a red-flag security agencies must note and be alert to as political activities heighten in the leadup to coming elections.”

 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nigeria has called on the nation’s electorate to resist desperate politicians and their political parties, which he says, are bent on deploying illegal, undemocratic and sinister means, including violence to manipulate the coming 2019 elections.

The ruling Party made this appeal on Sunday in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Yekini Nabena, copy of which was sent to The DEFENDER, which it said was informed by Nigeria-bound ship detained in South Africa for carrying arms and explosives and the recent arms seizures by the Nigeria Customs Service.

“This is a red-flag security agencies must note and be alert to as political activities heighten in the leadup to coming elections.

“We invite the opposition to wake up to new realities where votes count and the people’s will prevail in all elections. We also call on all well-meaning Nigerians to support ongoing progressive efforts by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration to ensure that our elections are transparent, free, fair and credible.

“Finally, we call on the National Assembly to urgently do the needful by reconvening to consider and pass the 2019 election budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). We condemn any attempt to weaken INEC ahead of the 2019 election.”
