How FG Plans To Rig Guber Polls In 24 States – CUPP
The national spokesman, Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Imo Ugochinyere, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of plotting to rig Saturday’s Gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections in 24 states.
In a Wednesday statement, Ugochinyere said, “From the signal intercepted, Nasarawa, Akwa Ibom, Sokoto, Anambra, Rivers, Taraba, Abia, Gombe and Delta states are to be flooded with riot police specifically for the purpose of helping the APC rig the elections and return the states to the APC.
“The listed states are controlled by the PDP except Nasarawa, which the PDP is also poised to reclaim from the APC.”
He attached a police signa, which he said was intercepted, to the statement.
He disclosed that the states identified in the police signal were not encountering any security challenges, noting that Borno, Yobe and Zamfara that have witnessed killings in recent times did not get additional security deployment.
According to him, Kaduna, Katsina and Plateau states that have also witnessed killings and reprisals have also not seen extra security deployment.
Ugochinyere added, “From the signal, the entire units of MOPOL 3 Enugu, 12 Minna, 21 FCT, 25 Azumini/Iwukem, and 45 FHQ Abuja are to move to Nasarawa State.
“MOPOL 22 Ikeja, 49 Epe and 23 FHQ Annex Lagos are all moving to help the APC rig Sokoto State.
“Furthermore, MOPOL 2 Keffi Street Lagos, 5 Benin, 17 Akure and 20 Ikeja are to relocate to Akwa Ibom to rig elections in the state.
“Gombe State will receive their own rigging machine from MOPOL 52 Chalawa and 58 Lafia, while the rigging squads to Abia State are to be moved from MOPOL 29 Awka, 31 Asaba and 33 Ado Ekiti.
“Delta State will be for MOPOL 19 Port Harcourt and 55 Aba, while Anambra State will be militarised by MOPOL 28 Umuahia, 51 Oghara and 63 Ikorodu.
“The APC has resolved that polls will be shifted or disrupted in Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Enugu, Ebonyi, Benue and Taraba states so that military might will also be concentrated on those states on the rescheduled dates.”
