The All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared that election in Nigeria under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has become free and fair.
This submission was made on Monday by Yekini Nabena, APC deputy spokesperson where he also described the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a crumbling and disillusioned party.
The APC statement comes as a response to claims by the National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus that the 2019 general elections in Nigeria were rigged by the APC.
The ruling party in its response to the claim, urged Secondus to rather focus on leading his party which is falling apart under his watch.
“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it this bad with the opposition Party’s stakeholders detached from the party activities as was witnessed with notable PDP leaders boycotting the Party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent Bayelsa State Governorship bribe-for-ticket scandal that indicted Secondus,” Nabena said in a statement.
“Little wonder, the recent months have witnessed many PDP members resign their membership due to Secondus activities which has brought the PDP to its knees.
“The PDP under Secondus is in willful denial of the obvious that under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, free, fair and credible elections is the new normal.
“Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading. We reiterate that President Buhari’s declaration that the APC could have used the military and other security services to overrun opposition states in the 2019 general election but chose free, fair elections is a solid pointer and demonstration of our proven democratic and progressive credentials.”

The APC chieftain noted that its doors are open to politicians who want to jump ship so as not to “sink with the opposition party.”
