REVEALED: Akpabio’s Letter Seeking Buhari’s Support To Rig A’Ibom
Plans to build cattle ranch in Ikono/Ini, Mosque in Uyo top negotiation
A letter believed to have emanated from the office of Senator Godswill Akpabio written to the presidency seeking support of the villa towards a seamless rigging of the forthcoming election in the state has been leaked to journalists.
The letter addressed to the Chief of Staff to the President, sought the presidency to mandate Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] chairman in the State to release result booklets and other election materials to him (Akpabio) two days to the election.
Akpabio in the letter sought to be allowed access to uncollected Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in areas where the PDP has strong presence.
The letter also sought the presidency to cause INEC to create additional 382 polling stations to ease the use of the uncollected PVCs, and the cancellation of election results in places where the PDP has advantage.
The letter further requested additional contingent of security to intimidate and suppress voter’s turnout.
Part of the letter says winning the governorship election was the only way the donation of land for a ranch and construction of a mosque in Uyo agreed with the President would be actualised.
It added that about 79 hectares of land have been acquired in Ikono/Ini for the ranch project.
