Waffi TVFebruary 2, 2019

WaffiTV:The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused
the decision All Progressives Congress (APC) of
goal to import increasingly foreign nationals into the
nation to impact the general elections, especially
the presidential race.
Consequently, the party charged security agencies to
promptly do comprehensive investigation
on the security and political implications of the
presence of two Nigerien governors and other
foreigners amid the APC presidential rally in Kano
on Thursday.
National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus,
speaking at the Pa Oruta Ngele Township Stadium
in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, scene of the party’s
presidential campaign flag-off in the state, called on
the Independent National Electoral Commission
(INEC) to disqualify APC’s presidential applicant,
President Muhammadu Buhari, from the February 16 race for allegedly importing foreign nationals to
impact the polls.
Secondus described as shameful, the APC rally in
Kano, where governors and different persons from
neighboring countries, especially Niger Republic,
visited and transparently campaigned for Buhari, saying
such activity shows that the decision party intends to import increasingly foreign nationals into the nation to impact the elections.
He said a vote in favor of the PDP presidential applicant, Atiku Abubakar, was a vote in favor of opportunity from neediness, yearning and insecurity, including: “Senator David Umahi is the best representative and I realize that you are going to vote in favor of him once more.

“Let me warn INEC that what we witnessed
yesterday (on Thursday) was the worst that we have
seen in the country, where people from other
countries, like Niger and Chad, came to influence
the elections in Nigeria.”
Briefing journalists yesterday in Abuja, PDP, through
its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged:
“President Buhari and the APC, in their desperation,
have compromised our territorial integrity as a
nation and this portends grave danger to our
national security and the sanctity of our electoral
“For a nation contending with insurgency and
banditry, the involvement of mercenaries from
neighbouring countries in the APC rally must be
condemned by all and sundry. This is particularly
against the backdrop of claims by Buhari that killer
herdsmen ravaging our nation are mercenaries who
are infiltrating from the Sahel region.”
The PDP noted that already, there was
apprehension that “miscreants who came from Niger
Republic to Buhari’s rally are being offered
accommodation in our country by the APC to
unleash violence immediately it is clear that Buhari
is losing in the February 16 presidential election.”
On account of this, PDP demanded an urgent and
thorough investigation into the circumstances
leading to the presence of politicians and thugs from
Niger Republic at the rally, urging the Presidency
and APC to immediately explain the “roles being
played by Issa Moussa, Governor of Zinder, and his
counterpart from Maradi, Zakiri Umar, both of the
Niger Republic, who were sighted decked in the
attires and official logos of the APC in our political
“Our security agencies must immediately investigate
and lay in the public domain, the circumstances
leading to their presence.”
In PDP’s opinion, “the presence of the Niger
Republic Governors at President Buhari’s rally
signposts a direct assault on the credibility of the
Presidential elections. This is particularly against
the backdrop of INEC’s plans to allow Internally
Displaced Persons (IDPs) in that country to vote in
our election, a situation that opens the way for
aliens to infiltrate as IDPs and participate in our
It asked: “What was the true purpose of the
invitation of these foreigners to the APC rally in
Kano on Thursday? What secret deals did APC
leaders make with them at the expense of our
national security?
“We, therefore, call on all Nigerians, irrespective of
creed, ethnicity and political affiliations, to rise in
total condemnation of this direct assault on our
territorial integrity as a nation. Our citizens must
henceforth be at alert and get prepared to defend
the sovereignty of our nation.”
