2019: APC has perfected plans to rig, there will be no elections – Ankio Briggs


Niger-Delta activist, Ankio Briggs has said the federal government is showing signs of desperation ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Ankio, in an interview with DAILY POST, said the plot ahead of the 2019 elections is mainly targeted at oil-producing states.

She said the desperation of the federal government is borne out of its actions towards Niger-Delta states just as she recalled the comment made by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun over the loss of Rivers, Delta, Akwa-Ibom and Bayelsa to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The activist, Ankio Brigss expressed fears that current realities indicate that the 2019 general elections will be a charade.

“The APC were pained when they lost Rivers, Delta, Bayelsa and Akwa-Ibom state. Even the Chairman said they are not happy that they could not win one oil-producing state and that come 2019 they will take those states.

“They are already working towards this by manipulating the electoral Law. Now, they are saying if you are originally registered to vote in Abuja, you can now transfer your card to a place like Rivers state and vote there. What it means is that they can transfer over five hundred thousand people to come and vote in Rivers state and there’s nothing anybody can do about it.

“Look, there will be no election. In the reality of it, there will be no election. How can there be election when it will not be free and fair.

“They will only deceive the world that they are holding elections because come what may, they will call the results. And what this APC government plans to do is to tell the person who has lost to go to court because they are people who are determined to take states that they ordinarily cannot win,” Ankio said.
