APC Youth Protesting Election Fraud

Youths under the umbrella of National Youths Wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday, issued a warning that they would go on a nationwide protest should the 2015 general elections get shifted again.

The youths said they will march on and occupy important places and government buildings across the country, including the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, should any further postponement of the elections be announced, as the March 28 date set for the presidential election draws nearer.

The warning was issued on Thursday at the end of a strategic meeting held by the various organs of the youth wing of the APC in Abuja.

The congregation of the APC youth leaders said even though their party has accepted the initial postponement as a party who respect law, order and constitution of the land, they, however, said any further postponement will be openly kicked against, emphasizing that they will take every legal means to stop any further postponement.

Speaking at a meeting with zonal and state leaders of APC youth wing in Abuja on Thursday, National Youth Leader, Alhaji Ibrahim Jalo Dasuki, expressed confidence that his party will be victorious in the coming elections.

His words: “Even though we know that what they have done was based on political reasons because they truly know that if election had held that time they will definitely lose, and we want to tell them that no matter the number of time they shift the election, we will definitely win these elections.

“We want to tell them that we have accepted it as our leaders have accepted, but election will be held on the 28 of March and that 28 remains sacrosanct because we will not tolerate any other shift in election dates.

“As law abiding citizens, we have accepted it but if it comes to a point that the government and INEC does not want to conduct elections, we will definitely have to take the necessary steps legally possible.”
