The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger State has stated that rigging of election was no longer possible in Nigeria.
State chairman, Alhaji Jibrin Imam, said this in an interview with the state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) on Wednesday,
He noted that performance and antecedents would be the determining factors for victories or defeat in forthcoming elections.
“The challenge of winning elections in 2019 will be enormous because Nigerians are now wiser and more politically sophisticated more so now that rigging is impossible.
“We (APC) will ride on our achievements to win election,” Jibrin said.
Imam added that “Facebook and textbook” critics of the administration were only “wasting their time, they are only campaigning for us”.
“We are happy with Mr President. We are happy with what he is doing. That is why we all endorsed him for a second term.
“What we have now is unprecedented in the history of Nigeria, not less than N3 trillion had been spent on development of infrastructure across the country.
“The anti-corruption drive of government has taken root. Nigerians are happy about this crusade,” the APC chieftain said.
