The Nigerian government is currently holding a three-day meeting with all commanders of Army formations on plans to rig the rescheduled general elections, the main opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, has said.
Speaking at a press conference Monday in Abuja, the APC national chairman, John Oyegun, said the meetings are currently ongoing in Kaduna.
Before the APC press conference, a military insider had written as follows to PREMIUM TIMES: “The presidency has forwarded a secret memo to all commanders of divisions, battalions of the Nigerian Army for a 3-day strategic meeting in Kaduna from Monday. Agenda: ‘How to use military to intimidate voters in APC states, to rig elections in favour of GEJ.”
But the military has denied any such meeting.
The Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, said, “I’m not aware of any meeting between the military and politicians. All I know is that Kaduna is an area where a lot of military training and exercises go on regularly.”
