The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said that the United States and other Western powers have resolved to deploy spy satellites to monitor the 2019 general election in Nigeria.

Atiku made this known while reacting to the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government’s response to the US, UK and other nations’ stance on the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.

The Waziri of Adamawa cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC, police, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and others, against any attempt to rig the election.

He said that the western powers would have eyes in the sky to catch any election rigger.

In a statement through his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, the former vice president said, “Buhari’s cabal is unhappy  with the statements from the US, the British and the EU because they know that these world powers have agreed to re-route their latest and most technologically sophisticated spy sattelites, including NAOL-47 satellite to provide comprehensive coverage over Nigeria on February 16.

“The photographs these satellites will deliver cannot only show someone reading a newspaper but also which newspaper they are reading.

“The truth is that, there is no country in the world where a president with this appalling record could ever be re-elected.

“Over 100 million Nigerians cannot afford even one decent meal a day, yet their president is seeking re-election.

“The world powers as well as Nigerians also have intelligence that Buhari will decisively lose the election since the people are angry because they are hungry and have no jobs.

“There is no level of rigging that this vile government could ever do to overturn the millions of Nigerians who will turn up at the polls to vote him out.

“We ask our dearest young population who got a job under Buhari in the last four years, to vote for Buhari.

“But all those who lost their jobs and whose relations lost their jobs and businesses to his maladministration to please come out in large numbers to elect Atiku Abubabar who is a harbinger of job creation.”
