The Chairman, Lagos State chapter of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Mr. Campbell Umeh-Nzekwe, says President Goodluck Jonathan has become so unpopular to the extent that he cannot win 10 states of the federation in the postponed presidential election coming up on March 28.
Umeh-Nzekwe said this while reacting to the postponement of the general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The APGA leader described the postponement of the election on the grounds of insecurity and the inability of some people to collect their Permanent Voter Cards as arrant nonsense.
He said the Jonathan administration had realised that the Peoples Democratic Party could not win in a free and fair contest.
Umeh-Nzekwe alleged that the six-week extension would be used to disqualify the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for alleged perjury.
He added that if a court fails to disqualify Buhari, Jonathan would pave the way for an interim government.
He said, “The whole game is to install an interim government. Jonathan had been deceived by those around him all along that he was popular and it finally dawned on him that he cannot win more than 10 states across the country. He can’t win majority of the states in the South and even in the North, he was stoned in several cities.
“So, he has now used the military to halt INEC. Next, he will use the judiciary to scuttle the elections. He will then install an interim government and appoint his stooge as the head. Nobody should be deceived.
“The PVC issue is just a smokescreen. Those who are interested in voting have already got their PVCs. In 2011, only about 40 million people voted but today over 60 million people have collected PVCs.
“They have seen a formidable opposition and that is why they have become jittery. The next plan is more deadly. The six weeks will be used to influence courts to nullify the election timetable and stop Buhari from contesting.”
