The All Progressives Congress, APC, have allegedly accused the Federal government of planning to deposit a large sum of money into the bank account of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega, in order to frame one of its leaders, Bola Tinubu.
Speaking in a press conference on Wednesday in Lagos, APC spokesperson, Lai Mohammed, disclosed that the aim of the plot was to use that as a reason to sack Mr. Jega so that he will not preside over the rescheduled elections slated for March 28 and April 11.
“There is a plot to transfer a humongous amount of money into the bank account of the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, and then claim that the money came from Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the APC in order to justify the ongoing plan to sack Prof. Jega so he won’t organize the elections.”
He also said that beyond Mr. Jega, there are plans to credit the bank accounts of some key national institutions in the country with huge amounts of money purportedly from the APC, ostensibly to compromise those institutions.
Mr. Mohammed further revealed that despite repeated claims to the contrary, the government is truly working hard to truncate the conduct of the elections.
