A President Muhammadu Buhari support group, Re-Elect Buhari Movement, (RBM), has declared that the president and the All Progressives Congress, (APC), will not engage in any illegality to win the 2019 general elections.
RBM was reacting to insinuations that the APC was trying to use federal might against the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Akwa Ibom State in the coming elections.
In a statement signed by its convener, Mr. Emmanuel Umohinyang, and made available to journalists, the RBM stressed that President Buhari was averse to illegality and would not condone same.
The statement reads, “I think it was Senator Akpan from Akwa Ibom State who raised that concern at the Senate where he alleged that there has been information that the APC is planning to use federal might to destabilize the state for election not to hold.
“As ridiculous as the position of the distinguished senator may be, one is drawn aback because it seems to me that the PDP has a particular pattern of doing things. Whenever they foresee defeat, they throw tantrum into the air so that when they lose, they will try to justify their earlier statement as the reason why they lost.
“Having said that, I do not think the APC would want to create such a scenario in a state that is almost an APC state now. You know the PDP was in government for 16 years and we are all witnesses to how the institution of the Federal Government was badly abused during the period.’’
