The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, says President Muhammadu Buhari and the cabal running his government are in panic mode having learnt of an alleged plan by the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union to deploy their latest spy satellites for the 2019 elections.
Abubakar also said Buhari is unhappy with the statements by these Western powers over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shuaibu, the former vice-president urged Buhari to ensure 2019 elections are free, fair and credible.
He said, “Buhari’s cabal is unhappy with the statements from the US, the British and the EU because they know that these world powers have agreed to re-route their latest and most technologically sophisticated spy satellites, including the NAOL-47 satellite, to provide comprehensive coverage over Nigeria on February 16.
“The photographs these satellites will deliver cannot only show someone reading a newspaper but also which newspaper they are reading.”
The Federal Government had, following statements from the US, UK and EU, warned against foreign interference in Nigeria’s affairs.
The PDP candidate, however, expressed concerns over the “desperation of the APC to rig the forthcoming elections;” and advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the military and the Police not to allow themselves to be used by “those interested in turning Nigeria’s democracy on its head.”
