The rigging strategy of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, may have been dismantled, following the heavy presence of International Observers in Kwara State, the home State of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Recall, that APC through the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, has been making frantic efforts to take over Kwara State.
This has led to heavy deployment of Securities Operatives in the State, by the Federal Government.
The statement forwarded to newsmen, by Olu Onemola, the Special Assistant on New Media to President of the Senate, on Saturday morning, reads in part: “As at 9am, this morning, Observers from the NDI, IRI, European Union, and the United Kingdom, among others, could be seen patrolling polling units in the State
“Many of the Observers have confirmed that their interest in the State, stems from the fact that this is the home State of Nigeria’s Number 3 Citizen, Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, who also serves as the Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Council.
