President Muhammadu Buhari has gone tough over the 2019 general elections, warning that those who plan to distrupt the elections will be doing that at the expense of their own lives.
The President said this at the caucus meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, held at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Monday.
The President, who was reacting to the submissions by the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of colluding with the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, said he has ordered security agencies to ensure they secure the whole environment and make sure the election went smoothly.
“I will warn those who have planned to disrupt the peaceful elections to desist from their planned actions. Anyone who tries that is doing it at the expense of his own life”. President Buhari said.
Earlier, Oshiomhole Oshiomhole who spoke extensively at the meeting, insisted that PDP was pre-informed by INEC, before the postponement of the general elections.
According to him, INEC told PDP not to spend its money, following its planned postponement, adding angrily that APC has spent so much in preparing for the elections and demanded that INEC should apologize to Nigerians, particularly APC voters who traveled far and near to cast their votes.
The APC chairman also said the party would write to INEC to discuss issues on how to make the postponed elections, free, fair and credible.
Oshiomhole said: “We want INEC to assure us that the elections would be free, fair and credible.
“They need to speak to us about the reconfiguration of card readers”.
