Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, won the 2019 genera election but were rigged out of the contest.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari vied the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, against former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.

President Buhari was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The Supreme Court upheld Buhari’s victory after Atiku and PDP had contested the result of the election from the tribunal to the apex court.

Mohammed while speaking on Politics Today, A channels Television programme on Thursday, claimed that electoral fraud perpetrated either by INEC or security personnel cost his party the election.

He said, “The general impression within the party and the country is that we won the election and that we lost to a lot of fraud, to a lot of manipulations that were perpetrated by either the electoral umpire or by the security operatives.”

“We do not want to be the whipping boys; we have looked inward to see what prevented us from winning the election. We have a lot of evidence, which we tendered but was not accepted. The issue now is that we know we are all Nigerians. We know the nook and cranny of Nigeria. We know what happened in 2019.

“We are not only looking at the other side and playing the blame game that is the fault of this present administration. We are also critical with ourselves, where we have some gaps, loopholes and inadequacies.

“We are not only looking at the other side, but we are also looking at ourselves, looking at our internal politics, and giving a level playing field for the youths and women who are a majority in terms of demographics and in terms of interest.

“And of course, making sure that the electoral umpire, the INEC that is now instituting some reforms, will also become impartial.”
