We will resist rigging in 2015 – Senator Waku

Senator Joseph Waku yesterday said despite instituting a court action against the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the party’s gubernatorial primaries in Benue State, his group would  work for the success of APC’s presidential candidate and would resist any attempt to rig the forthcoming polls.

Waku made this known in Kano  during an interactive session with newsmen, saying rigging the February elections would spell doom for the country.
“The leader of the party in Benue had an agenda, so he frustrated the gubernatorial primaries of the party in the state until when time stipulated for the primary elapsed. As such the congress didn’t take place. We converged in his house only to be told that a name has been forwarded to the national secretariat of the party. We discovered that it was the name of somebody we have never known in APC; somebody that was rejected by the PDP.

“We said that cannot happen. This was why we went to court after all attempts to make the party intervene had failed. We thank God that the presidential election  is going to come first, so, we would all work for our presidential candidate, and when it comes to the governorship election, we would choose who to vote for. Go to Benue, they are waiting for my voice now,” Senator Waku said.

He added; “If Goodluck did not win election, and he forces himself on Nigerians, there would be crisis. I am appealing to Nigerians, leaders and INEC, specifically, should remain independent. Any attempt to cajole anybody, particularly the APC, that would meet resistance.”
