Why National Assembly Must Probe Buhari Govt - PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the report of the joint Nigeria International Election Observation Mission of the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI), that Nigeria’s 2019 general electionsfell significantly” short of the standards set in 2015, shows that the 2019 Presidential poll was rigged in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Naija News reports that the nation’s main opposition party made this statement in reaction to the report on the 2019 election by the United States of America based institutions, which was publicly presented in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Tuesday.

In a chat with Vanguard, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi described as shameful the fact that “it is foreign observers that have told us the errors in our electoral system and democracy.”

His words: “the report vindicates the position of our party that the electoral system is in danger and democracy is under threat. The Presidential election was rigged and that is why we are at the tribunal to prove to the world that the election failed credibility test.

“Buhari has muscle the judiciary and we all remember the way the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen was eased out of the way. Now he has imposed Tanko Mohammed. Last week, they imposed their preferences of leaders at the National Assembly in the persons of Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, all in a bid to have their way all the time. We will retrieve our mandate.”
