Politicians have been urged to always play by the rules by allowing the votes of Nigerians to count during electioneering period.

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Nigerian Federal capital territory, Abuja, Dr Abubakar said that some politicians actions to win elections by all means would affect the system of democracy in Nigeria.

Dr Ahmad make this appealed in an interview with Voice of Nigeria in Abuja.

‘If anybody tries to ignite crisis just to win elections by all means, it will lead to anarchy in the country,” the APC Chieftain stated.

According to him, ”APC as party is determined and committed to letting the votes of Nigerians count in any elections as seen during the just concluded Presidential, National Assembly, Gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections across the country.”


Dr Ahmad called on the politicians who feel disappointed or aggrieved with the process to always seek for redress in the court of law.

Commenting on the FCT Area Council re-run elections, Dr Ahmad urged the Area Councils Chairmen seeking for return and their opponents to be law abiding before, during and after exercise.

Dr Ahmad also said that what the party is doing ahead of the re-run is trying to mobilise people and get them more aware and involved in the process.

“Mostly get them involved in what we have done in their various Area Council in which the re-run will be taking place. Even though one of the area council is not continuation, it is a new person on board and luckily he is the only one leading so far in the three of the Area Council to be re-run because we have a magic to work with, like Bwari we have over two thousand or so which the PDP are leading us in the race but we will do the needful,” he stressed.

Dr Ahmad debunked the allegations from the opposition party the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, that the governing APC is trying to manipulate the exercise in which they have already won.

He qsaid; “my take is that, they knew that there is crisis in the two area councils in the first instance, they were not leading in three Area council, APC is leading in Kwali, is not PDP that is leading there. They are only leading in Kuje and Bwari which also has a lot of abnormally.”
