Senate President Bukola Saraki has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) national caucus meeting as a “Nollywood meeting.”
The APC NEC had an emergency meeting on Monday over the postponement of the general election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Speaking at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) meeting on Tuesday, Saraki said the ruling party did not want the elections to hold last Saturday.
“INEC, we know that they do not want you to hold that election on Saturday, but we want you to hold that election on Saturday,” he said.
“The Nollywood APC meeting yesterday was because they don’t want elections on Saturday, but we want elections on Saturday, Nigerians want elections on Saturday, the world wants elections on Saturday.
Saraki said while the PDP is against any plan to rig the election, the party condemns President Muhamamdu Buhari’s death threat to ballot snatchers.
“PDP is against election rigging. The law must apply to people that rig. We in the PDP stand against election rigging, we oppose election rigging, but we are also against jungle justice and disregard of the rule of law,” he said.
“When you come out to vote on Saturday, do you want a Nigeria that that adheres to the rule of law, or do you want a Nigeria that is governed by jungle justice.
“I want to appeal to Nigerians, their plan is to have low turn out and frustrate you. Please come out again and vote for Atiku that will make the country better. On Saturday, when you come out to vote, vote for Nigeria,” he said.
