The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) has alerted of plot by Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State to cause for the cancellation of Saturday’s election and to provoke a state of emergency in the state.
A press statement from the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APCPCO noted that intelligence report at its disposal indicates that the Bauchi State governor is in the process of manufacturing crises across the state so as to give an impression that elections across the state which put the APC in clear lead in all layers of election was inconclusive and therefore call for an outright cancellation of all the elections held on Saturday in Bauchi State.
“We have it on good authority that Governor Yuguda is planning to engineer violence across Bauchi State in order for him to provoke a state of emergency so that elections across the state which put the APC in strong lead in the state would be seen to have been marred by violence.
“We make bold to state that this plot by the Bauchi State governor to write off the electoral wishes of the people is anti-democratic, pernicious, subversive and absolutely unacceptable.
“In the light of this development we call on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to be railroaded by the Governor Yuguda and all other anti-democratic forces into taken actions that may jeopardise the tranquillity we have so far enjoyed in the course of this election.
“We, however, call on the teeming supporters of the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari in Bauchi State and across the country to be abreast of this development and never fall for the demonic plot to write off their franchise as clearly expressed in the Saturday, March 28 Presidential and National Assembly Election. We urge them to be resolute, vigilant, peaceful and law abiding,” the statement signed by Mallam Garba Shehu in Daura, Katsina State on Sunday, March 29 stated.
Meanwhile, the state government has declared a 24hours curfew in three local governments ( Bauchi,Alkeleri and Kirfi) because of the attack by insurgents during the election on Saturday where some voting material were set ablaze by the insurgents.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
