Arms Seizure: APC urges Nigerians to reject desperate politicians

Share This

By Umar Muhammad Puma

Ahead of the 2019 elections, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Nigerians to resist desperate politicians and their political parties who are bent on deploying illegal, undemocratic and sinister means, including violence to manipulate elections.

The party, in a statement issued by the acting National publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the call has become necessary 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 lead up to coming elections.
“We invite the opposition to wake up to new realities where votes count and the peoples’ 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.
“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.
