Senator Ali Ndume of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) plans to rig the 2023 election through electronic means.
The APC lawmaker’s comment is coming shortly after the National Assembly voted against the adoption of electronic transmission of votes.
According to him, the move to adopt electronic transmission of results is PDP’s idea to rig the forthcoming election with the aid of cyber fraudsters also known as Yahoo boys.
Speaking to Roots TV, the senator representing Borno South District said: “This electronic voting they are talking about, i think its PDP’s idea to rig the election because they are the ones that have the Yahoo-Yahoo boys, they are the ones that have ‘Hushpuppi’.
“These are the people otherwise i don’t see any reason for the cry out on this matter”.
He continued; “The truth of the matter is that we had 6 elections in this country and the one that was administered under the government of APC was adjudged to be very credible where you saw opposition winning elections under a sitting government. That was not the case during the PDP”.
“If you are thinking is that APC is doing this to take advantage of it, we would have taken advantage of the previous elections that were conducted credibly”.
