The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of importing foreigners from Niger Republic and Chad to rig the upcoming elections.
The presidential candidate also called on all PDP supporters to stay back at the polling units and defend their votes on election day.
According to Daily Post, Atiku said this while speaking at the presidential rally in Edo state.
He said “You have seen how they are bringing people from the neighbouring countries of Niger and Chad.
“They want to use them to rig the February 16 election, they are coming into your country and turn you to slave, so you should not allow it.
“I appeal to you to vote for PDP and after voting, you should stay there till they count the votes, because if you leave, they will cheat you and rig the election and if you allow them, they are rigging your future.
“If you look at the register today, 70 per cent are young men and young women and this means that we have to prepare you to take over leadership of this country and also have a meaningful carrier so that you will succeed in whatever you want to do.
“We are not like APC. You know what the PDP has done for this country, when we came in 1999, oil was $11 and we save money to pay our debt, brought GSM technology and everything to this country. We want to continue on that part of prosperity, so you must vote for us.”
