2019: Rig Elections In Akwa Ibom, Risk Your Head – Secondus Warns Opponents

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has warned that any one who has intention of rigging the 2019 elections in Akwa Ibom State risks losing his/her life.

Secondus stated this on Monday during a campaign tour of the PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, which was held at the GodswillI Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo Akwa Ibom State.

According to Secodus, “I want to warn those of our friends are in Abuja, who are from this state, who only believe that elections in Akwa Ibom must be rigged, to have a rethink.

“If you rig elections in Akwa Ibom, you will risk your head.”

He wondered why the opposition APC would rear its head in Akwa Ibom, a state adjudged to be PDP, noting that in other civilized nations, any state known to be fully occupied by a political party, the other party will not try to go there.

The Chairman urged Akwa Ibom people to join hands to vote out APC led federal government, which he described as being economically battered and threat to democracy.

His words, “Our dear country is in distress and the whole world is aware. The economy is torn and collapsed, security is porous, people are being killed everyday, hunger and intimidation of the judiciary have become the order of the day.

“We can no longer keep quiet and silent. All the actions of Buhari are threat to democracy. They are dangerous to the existent of this country and democracy.

“Our country is passing through trying period. As we speak, the NJC, all the civil society groups are meeting to deliberate on the illegal actions of the president, a president who does not care about the constitution. He wants to be the chief Judge of Nigeria, he wants to be the Senate President and to be the speaker of the House of representatives.”

He also argued the rationale behind the sack of the CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, by President Buhari saying that the president has no powers to fire the CJN.

“Our constitution provides separation of powers which the president has refused to respect. He cannot fire the Chief justice of Nigeria. We want him to reverse all the irreversible, if he refuses, God will reverse him and something must happen,” he said.
