Olawepo-Hasshim: APC, PDP playing games with Nigeria’s stability

Presidential candidate of the People’s Trust (PT), Mr. Gbenga Olawepo- Hashim, has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of playing politics with the nation’s stability through the way and manner they were handling the Electoral Act.

The candidate, who was reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s decline of assent to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, stressed that rather than presenting themselves as statesmen, the leadership of both parties were rather obsessed with immediate partisan gains. Olawepo-Hashim said: “The President is conducting himself like a typical Nigerian politician of the era of political decline, rather than behaving as a patriot that I have always thought he is.

By his actions, he is simply saying let me benefit from the fraudulent process for my 2019 bid. You can push for the new law in 2023, when I will not be contesting.
