2019 elections: PDP sending delegation to London, Washington to reject outcome of polls – FG


The federal government has revealed plans by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to reject the outcome of 2019 upcoming election.

Minister of Information, Lai Muhammad speaking during a press conference attended by DAILY POST said PDP has sent delegations to London, Washington alleging plans by President Muhammadu Buhari to rig the election.

Mohammad noted that the opposition party had planned to reject the 2019 election results.

He said: “Today, still based on credible intelligence, we can reveal that the opposition is moving a step further. They are working hard to discredit the forthcoming election before, during and after the polls.

“Specifically, they are sending a delegation to some Western capitals, including London, Brussels and Washington, DC, to push the concocted line that the Buhari Administration has perfected the plan to rig the polls.

“They are, therefore, pushing for a rejection of the results if the President wins re-election. They are also predicting carnage in the event of the President’s victory.

He, however, reiterated Buhari’s commitment to ensuring a free and fair election.

“The Buhari Administration is committed to a free, fair, credible and peaceful poll. We are glad that local and international observers are already fully mobilized to monitor the election.

“We call on all Nigerians to be vigilant as we begin the final countdown to the election. Eternal vigilance, as the saying goes, is the price of liberty. We must not allow desperate politicians to crash our democracy on the altar of their personal – and sometimes inordinate – ambition!”

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of Lagos State Police Command have arrested two suspected robbers who allegedly killed an Uber driver and stole his car.

The Lagos Police spokesman, CSP Chike Oti, said that the suspects were arrested in Aboki Estate, Lekki, Lagos.

According to a statement by Oti, the suspects were arrested while removing the parts of the stolen Hyundai Elantra car with Reg. No. EPE 676 EC for sale to a scrap metal dealer.

He said the arrest was carried out following a directive from the new Lagos police boss, CP Zubairu Mu’azu, that the RRS Commander, ACP Olatunji Disu, should fish out the culprits.

”On the said day, the quartet at around 11 p.m. waved down the deceased, Sunday Obasi, in Lekki. They told him they were going to Ikate and he charged them N1,000.

”Before getting to their destination, the suspects told the driver that they wanted to ease themselves. It was at this point they descended on the driver.

”They killed him and pushed him off the car into the road before driving the car to Beach Road, Lekki, where they hid it for two days while looking for buyer and swapped the number plate of the car with a Volkswagen Passat car (FKJ 708 CA) close by,” he said.
