Only Buhari, INEC, Police Can Rig Election – Ex-APC spokesman



Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank,on Friday said it would be impossible to rig the forthcoming general election in Nigeria without the approval of the President, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agents.

The former deputy national publicity secretary of APC made this known In a statement on Friday, urged UK and US governments to “hold” President Buhari and the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, responsible if the upcoming general elections are manipulated.

While commending the both governments for the decision to ban election riggers, Frank noted that some politicians and their families have always consider those countries as safe heaven after robbing the voters not only their votes.

“In a case where the INEC chairman sneaked into the presidential villa to take order as we have revealed in the past, such body can not be neutral and such INEC boss has lost all his integrity, if any to conduct a free and fair election,” Frank said.

“In 2015, the then INEC boss refused to succumb to the dictates of the ruling government and that’s why opposition party was able to take over the government at center and in many states but we can not say the same of the current leadership of INEC.

“One of the examples is the public outcry against the INEC imposed guideline that allow rigging and seems to favour the ruling party against others but the INEC boss still went ahead to approve.”

Frank called on the UK and US not to limit its ban on the riggers alone but to frozen their bank accounts, property and deport all their family members in the countries to serve as a lesson to others.
