Senator Ben Bruce Explains How INEC Will Rig Elections
Senator Ben Murray Bruce has alleged that there are plans by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to massively rig this year’s February elections. The Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial Zone and member of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, said he and his team are watching closely and will ensure justice takes the lead.
Raising concerns over the credibility of INEC ahead of the much anticipated general elections, Ben Bruce said “And you think I should believe INEC? Do you think I should believe INEC or the chairman of INEC? I am watching INEC. I believe a lot of them are going to pay a terrible price after the elections because all those involved in rigging the elections I am sure will not have one single international job after the elections. We will remind the international organizations that these people rigged the elections and you don’t want a crook in your organization. So anybody who wants an international job should not be involved in any act of fraudulence. We know all of them by name and if you are involved in fraud or electoral malpractice of any kind, forget about being rewarded with international assignments.”
He added that President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to sign the Electoral Bill into law is a strategy to manipulate the election results.
He argued that “Election results were manipulated in 2015 using the incidence forms. If the President had signed the bill and the law is passed, it means there would be no incidence forms to fall back on to rig the election. The incidence form is part of the strategy or game plan for electoral victory by the APC. You can write it and from there other things could happen. So I leave that to your imagination.”
