Coalition Claims The Move Is Planned At Destroying The Chances Of A Free And Fair Election

The Coalition of 39 United Political Parties (CUPP), while reacting to the rejection of President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law, alleged that it’s a deliberate plan to destroy the chances of free and fair election ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The CUPP, which released a statement in Abuja on Tuesday through its spokesman, Mr. Ikenga Ugochinyere stated that the President and the ruling All Progressives Congress were scared of losing the election thereby causing them to stand against the bill.

He said, “The CUPP views the deliberate last-minute rejection of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill by the President Buhari-led APC government as a clear indication that Buhari and the APC want to destroy the chances of free and fair election in Nigeria simply because they are afraid of losing the 2019 general election.

“Buhari and APC are scared of the compulsory use of card readers for accreditation and transmission of election results which the new electoral law provides for.

“The CUPP urges National Assembly to use a joint sitting whenever they return from recess to handle the INEC budget issue and Electoral Act observations and send the clean copy back to President Buhari so that he will have no excuse to ruin our desire for credible elections.
