The Lagos state chairman of the Inter-Party Advisor Council ( IPAC), Kola Ajayi has warned that it would forcefully resist any attempt to rigged the 2019 general elections in favor of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ajayi who was speaking in a chat with The Daily Times, supported the calls by former President Olusegun Obansanjo for a ‘third force’, stressing that what the opposition need to form a collation to defeat the APC led administration of President Mohammedu Buhari from power.
He noted the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, had failed Nigerians, stressing that it would lose massively in the presidential election if it decides to ignore calls for him not to re-contest the 2019 presidential election.
He said, “If there is any attempt to rig next year’s election we are ready to spill blood, we would guard the electoral process jealously. What Obasanjo said is true, the two parties have failed us what we need now is a big coalition to defeat the APC from power, and you know the two parties have failed Nigerians, even the APC was made up of coalition.
“What is Buhari coming to do again in office, after spending about three years what has he done? He has health challenge and he could not deal with the herdsmen killings; it shows the weakness of this government”
Ajayi, who is also the state chairman of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) berated the Buhari administration for failing to tackle the incessant herdsmen killings, while stressing that the President should have visited Benue State and commensurated with the people over the recent killings.
He urged the President to urgently declare Miyatti Allah, a terrorist group over the killing in the country by the Fulani herdsmen’s, adding that the President had declared double standard by banning the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) which activities was peaceful and recognised globally.
Speaking further, he charged Nigerians to partake in the current voters registration exercise, adding that meaningfull leadership change could only be made in the country if all the citizenry was involved in the electoral process.
“Why not proscribe them as a terrorist group, look at the way IPOB was dealt with and declared a terrorist group, when you look at it is it not double standard? Look at the Fulani killings why can’t the President visit Benue and commensurate with the people?
And if anything Tunde Bakare and his people would protest why don’t they protest now? Nigerians should go out and register and acquire their Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC), that is their power to change bad government,” Ajayi said.
