Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd.), a former Minister of Defence, on Tuesday while inaugurating a medical laboratory at the Rufkatu Danjuma Maternity Hospital in Takum, Taraba State, alleged a plot to rig the forthcoming February 16 presidential election.
According to TY Danjuma, there is a plot to cause unrest that would make certain states ungovernable in order to manipulate the forthcoming elections.
The former Army Chief who described Nigeria’s democracy as primitive urged his people to protect their votes to prevent electoral fraud.
“We must work hard for peace in addition to just registering and obtaining our Permanent Voter Cards.
“There is no need to fight one another because they will use the police and soldiers to destabilise us and rig the elections.
“It is in our best interest to ensure there is peace. Those behind this plot know that they will not win elections if there is peace. I want to call on you not to sell your votes because you will be selling your birthright if you do so.”
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo had few days ago accused the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government of plotting to rig the forthcoming election.
