President Muhammadu Buhari should get ready to leave office in 2019, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned.
In a statement, the PDP alleged that the Buhari government is trying to rig the 2019 general elections with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, to perish the thoughts of staying in power a day beyond May 29, 2019,” the statement said.
This is as it warned the “Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu not to allow the APC and the Buhari Presidency to use him to execute their plots to frustrate the conduct of credible 2019 elections and push for illegal tenure elongation for President Buhari.”
It added that “Seeing that Nigerians are standing shoulder to shoulder with the PDP to resist and dismantle their rigging machinery, the APC and Buhari Presidency are now trying to use INEC to frustrate the elections and cause crisis in our country.”
The party, therefore, “rejects this plot by APC and INEC. The 2019 election must hold as scheduled. Nigerians are ready for elections and cannot wait to vote out President Buhari and his dysfunctional APC.”
