Former Minister of Defence, Lt. General Theophilus Danjuma (Rtd )has raised fears over plans to manipulate the 2019 elections in Taraba State.
Danjuma alleged that there was a major plan to disrupt the governorship election in the state while a runoff would be declared which would pave way for the rigging plan.
Danjuma noted this at the commissioning of medical laboratories in Takum on Tuesday.
He advised the people of the state to avoid all forms of provocation that would lead to cancellation of results in the state. This also, he said, was part of the plan.
He said, “we are in the eve of election. Those who do not wish us well will want us to fight ourselves, then they will use soldiers and police to distabilize us and rig the election.
“They will provoke you to fight yourselves because they know they will loose if there is a peaceful election.
“I beg everyone of you to help maintain peace so we can have a peaceful election and that there are no surprises and will be no postponement.”
“The last time when Darius’s political party was the ruling party, he was made to have run off three times.
“This time they have perfected running off.
“Once you don’t win the first time, the second time, they will sit down and write the result and announce it in the run off.
“They will award votes and this is the primitive democracy we now operate in this country.
