Electoral Bill: Buhari, APC Ganging Up To Destroy Democracy — Gov Fintiri

President Muhammadu Buhari is conspiring with his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to undermine democracy by repealing the Electoral Act, according to Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.

Fintiri stated during an event in Mubi, a major town in the state’s northern region, that Buhari refused to sign the Electoral Act, which had been duly enacted by the National Assembly, because he feared it would not favor the APC in the 2023 general elections.

“We are not surprised because of the level of decadence that this federal government has brought into our system: destruction of our economy, destruction in infrastructures, security and youth development.

“Now, again they are ganging up to destroy our democracy by encouraging the President not to assent to the electoral bill because they are afraid of 2023.”

Fintiri made the statement after receiving members of the APC in Mubi who decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying, “We are here in the city of Mubi, the commercial headquarters of Adamawa, to receive back into our fold those decamping from the APC who are contented with the infrastructural development of the PDP under my watch.”

He advised Nigerians to come together to stop the “conspiracy of some stalwarts of the APC who are scheming to destroy the country’s democracy and development.”

Fintiri stressed, “We have to come together as a people to fight and rescue our democracy because it is the only way out.”

Those who officially decamped from APC to the PDP in Mubi included a member of the State House of Assembly, Musa Bororo.
