The African Action Congress has warned the ruling class against setting up an interim government through the call for the cancellation of Saturday’s presidential poll.
The party which had Adeyeye Sowore as Presidential Candidate said though the election was not free, fair and credible, interim government was not an option.
The AAC said this on Tuesday in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Femi Adeyeye, in Abuja.
Rejecting alleged interim government plot, however, the ACC said, “We are calling on the ruling class to shelve their plans to constitute an interim government, as that would be their gain in this imbroglio. We strongly oppose the constitution of an interim government, and we shall mobilise Nigerians to resist such plan. We are warning again!”
Adeyeye noted that the election, “failed the basic tests of integrity and transparency as INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission) together with the so-called major parties engaged in large-scale vote-buying, voters’ intimidation, vote suppression and results manipulation as evidenced by various reports from polling units and collation centres.”
He added that “INEC clearly stipulated in Clause 38 of its Regulations and Guidelines that election results must be transmitted electronically via the BVAS after announcement at the polling units. In fact, the guidelines criminalise failure to comply with this provision.”
