See the statement below

This present administration does not want the existence of one Nigeria. We don’t know if there will be Nigeria after the 2019 General elections.

The National Assembly tried to cure the defects of the Electoral Act that led to controversies during the 2015 elections. After the passage, the President kept on giving countless excuses why he wouldn’t sign the amended Electoral Act.

The whole essence of not signing the Electoral Act is to rig the 2019 General elections. And in the plot to rig the 2019 elections, Rivers State comes first and Akwa Ibom State is the second on their list.

President Muhammadu Buhari is aware that if he assents to the amended 2019 electoral act, he will lose the 2019 elections.

The APC is working against transparent and credible polls because they have been rejected by Nigerians.

Now, they don’t want to use the smart card readers because they want to sit down and write results.

It is painful that the President that says he is fighting corruption is leaving room for the rigging of the 2019 polls. There is no corruption worse than rigging. The President cannot set this country on fire.

The country belongs to all Nigerians, hence every group must rise up to defend the nation’s democracy.

The Church should work with other well-meaning Nigerians to resist the criminal intent of the Buhari administration in the area of election rigging.
