CUPP Backs INEC’s Decision,Calls On Security Agencies To Secure Countries Democracy
The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, says it believes strongly that the desperation of the APC led administration to win the presidential election by all means caused the last minute postponement of the general election.
According to a statement by CUPP Spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere ,alleged that In their bid to once again foist an unpopular government on Nigerians, they threw caution to the winds and started setting electoral materials on fire in states that are well known to be strongholds of opposition.
“These acts of sabotage, no doubt, ruined the preparations of the Independent National Electoral Commission for the elections.”
“We have raised the alarm many times that agents of the government were working hard to ensure that elections are not held or are declared inconclusive in areas they know that the All Progressives Congress will never win. We have been vindicated.
We blame the international embarrassment this last minute postponement has caused the nation on the President, the desperate leaders of his party, APC, and the nation’s security agencies who failed woefully in their duties to protect electoral materials and INEC offices from attacks by these enemies of the nation.
We call on the security forces to sit up and ensure that these enemies of democracy are not allowed to have their ways again.
We make bold to say that with the postponement, President Buhari’s judgement day with the people has just been shifted .
INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, has shown courage by shifting the election to avert national bloodshed because we are aware that APC wanted to proceed with election after compromising distribution and destroying materials in over 15 states.
