Festus Keyamo, All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council’s spokesperson dismisses claims that the party was planning to truncate the 2023 elections by putting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
APC is not pressurizing INEC to truncate the 2023 elections – Keyamo
Keyamo defined the rumors of APC planning to truncate the 2023 election as groundless and false.
This was in response to the allegation by an opposition political party, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) that the APC plans to truncate the 2023 elections process.
Ikenga Ugochinyere, CUPP’s spokesperson, accused APC governors of plotting a leadership shift that would pave the way for their plans.
Ugochinyere buttressed that plans are to disrupt the electronic transmission of the 2023 election results and also deactivate the Bi-modal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) from the INEC server during the elections.
CUPP spokesperson also claimed that INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu and some National Commissioners were under coercion to deactivate the BVAS from the server.
This got Keyamo to dismiss such claims while speaking with journalists in Abuja.
Keyamo said: “There has been absolutely no occasion where the APC, either through NWC or any of levels of leadership, put any kind of pressure on INEC.
“Those sensing defeat are already looking for reasons for that defeat. It is one of the reasons, it is one of the excuses they are trying to generate to accommodate their defeat, but they should know that the defeat is imminent.”
