The Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Tuesday alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was behind the postponement of Saturday’s elections.
Saraki claimed that APC wanted low turnout so it can prevent Nigerians from turning out enmasse to vote in the rescheduled elections.
The Senate President, who made the claim during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, emergency National Executive Council, NEC, meeting in Abuja, said low turnout will enable APC rig the election.
He, however, urged Nigerians to come out en masse and vote in order to prevent APC from rigging the polls.
According to Saraki: “We have four more days to go. I want to appeal to Nigerians do not let them frustrate you. When there is a low turn out, they can rig, but if you come out to vote, they cannot rig.
“INEC, we know that they do not want you to hold that election on Saturday, but we want you to hold that election on Saturday. The Nollywood APC meeting Yesterday was because they don’t want elections on Saturday, but we want elections on Saturday, Nigerians want elections on Saturday, the world wants elections on Saturday.
“As they say, when your time has come, your time has come, President Atiku Abubakar, your time has come!”
