The Action Democratic Party, ADP, has has given reason why it won’t accept the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on Tuesday released the election timetable.
The national chairman of ADP, Engineer Yabaji Yusuf Sani, who spoke to journalists yesterday in Abuja, faulted the scheduling of the presidential election before the governorship poll.
The national electoral umpire fixed Saturday, February 16, 2019 as the date for the Presidential and National Assembly elections, while Governorship and State Assembly elections would hold on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
Sani said there was an attempt by the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to rig the 2019 polls.
He said the general elections should start from the State Assembly election and end with the presidential poll.
“The order of the elections as released by the INEC is one thing we are not comfortable with because once you have a president sitting there, then he calls the shots.
“He can have his way against the wishes of the people of the country.
“So, this is one area we are not comfortable with and I think that area can be looked into,” Sani said.
