Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, the founder of Igbo Youth Movement and the Secretary of the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, has said President Muhammadu Buhari cannot rig 2019 elections.
Uko, in an interview with DAILY POST said Buhari cannot use any means to rig the election because Nigerians from all the six geopolitical zones have rejected him.
According to him, it is impossible for Buhari to gather 40% votes on Feb. 16 as people in Plateau, North and South-South region will not vote Buhari owing to the number of killings experienced in their respective states.
Describing Buhari’s integrity as ‘fake’, Uko noted that Nigerians want a leader who would serve justice equally across all regions.
He said: “It is impossible for Gen Buhari to rig himself in, this 2019, because Nigerians have rejected him. Nigerians from the six geopolitical zones have rejected suffering, poverty, insecurity, bloodbath and then fake integrity.
“Nigerians from all the six geopolitical zones want to see a level playing field and leadership that will give all sections justice and equity. No right thinking Nigerian will want Buhari to have second tenure.
“It will be impossible for him to rig. It will be impossible. Because it is clear that the people in Agatu, who buried over one thousand people last year cannot want Gen Buhari to continue. It is clear that people in Plateau who buried hundreds of people cannot want Gen Buhari to continue.
“It is clear that the people in the North East and North West who are undergoing difficult time starting with both insecurity, poverty and all kinds of misery cannot want Gen Buhari to continue. The people from the South West are enlightened people. The Yorubas are learned people, they are educated and very smart. They do not want this misery to continue.
“Yes I know that a few of them are erroneously supporting Buhari, because they believe that Buhari will give them presidency in 2023 when you and I know that if by some miracle or opportunity Buhari gets second term, he will disappoint them in 2023, you know that and I know that.
“The entire South East and South South is no go area for Buhari because he hates this region with passion. He says we are 5% people. He proved it in his appointment, proved it in his statement and utterances, proved in his treatment of our children by killing them in cold blood.
“It is impossible for him to rig. Gen Buhari will not gather up to 40% of vote cast on Saturday 16th February, 2019. He is a disaster, he should pack and go.”
