#NigeriaDecides:BREAKING: Snatch ballot boxes and lose your life — Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has warned potential troublemakers to stay away from ballot boxes on February 23.
At a hurriedly arraigned meeting of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja on Monday morning, the president warned that anyone who foments trouble, especially by carrying ballot boxes, would be doing so at the “expense of his life”.
Mr Buhari made the statement after reprimanding the Independent National Electoral Commission for postponing the general elections from February 16 to 23.
The president repeated that he gave INEC all necessary supports to ensure a smooth exercise, but the electoral body still displayed “incompetence” and failed to let Nigerians go to the poll as originally scheduled.
Electoral chiefs cited widespread logistics mishaps for the “painful” postponement, and promised everything would be in order before the new date of February 23 for presidential federal parliamentary elections. Statewide elections would now hold on March 9, from the initial March 2.
Mr Buhari also threatened consequences against INEC chairman Mahmood Yakubu, agreeing with the submission of party chairman Adams Oshiomhole that the electoral chief had compromised and in was purported collusion with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
The national caucus meeting, which was initially televised for about 30 minutes in was cut off live broadcast after the president’s blistering remarks. (Premium Times)
