The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to disqualify  President Muhammadu Buhari from participating in the 2019 presidential election.

National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus made the call at the party’s rally in Enugu.

He accused Buhari, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party, APC, of bringing in machineries from Niger Republic to manipulate the election.

Secondus described as shameful, the incident in Kano on Thursday, during the APC presidential campaign where governors from neighbouring countries, especially Niger Republic attended the rally and openly campaigned for the president.

He said such actions showed that the APC intended to import more foreign nationals into the country to influence the elections and called on INEC to disqualify the party from the elections.

The chairman said a vote for the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abibakar is a vote for freedom from poverty, hunger and insecurity.

“Atiku will rescue Nigerian from poverty, hunger and mass killings. 

“Let me warn INEC that what we witnessed diring APC rally in Kano yesterday is the worst that we have seen in the country where people from other countries like Niger and Chad including two governors,  came to influence the election in Nigeria.

“By the power conferred on me as the PDP national chairman, I call on the INEC Chairman, Mr. Yakubu to disqualify Buhari from contesting the election.

“We ask INEC to disqualify Buhari for bringing in machineries to influence the election. INEC better be warned that you cannot rig this election. We have already won this election. Atiku believes in the youths and women, that is why they are always trouping out massively to welcome him anywhere we have gone”, Secondus said.

Earlier in a remark, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki lamented the high rate of hunger and unemployment in the country since the coming of the APC to power.

He attributed the economic downturn in the country to the inexperience of the ruling government in management of the economy.

"Atiku is experienced having been in the private sector, so vote for a man that can talk to anybody, bring in investors to Nigeria, eliminate hunger from the land and revitalise the economy. That man is Atiku Abubakar”, he said
