The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has given President Buhari a tip on how he can prove to Nigerians that what he said in Poland is really true.
There had been insinuations that Buhari was replaced with one Jubril from Sudan. Responding to the claim, Buhari, while in Poland, said that he is real and not cloned.
However, CUPP has now said Buhari can prove he was not a double by signing the electoral amendment bill 2018, upon his return from Poland.
In a statement signed by Ikenga Ugochinyere, its spokesman, CUPP wondered why Buhari has deliberately refused to sign the electoral amendment bill, 2018.
CUPP also wondered how Buhari, “who had claimed to be a victim of rigged elections and how an improved electoral process benefitted him in 2015 is now the greatest antagonist to free and fair election”.
The statement reads: “Many Nigerians do not believe that the Buhari they knew in 2015 who declared that he belonged to everyone and belonged to no one is the same person dividing Nigerians along 97% and 5% and exhibiting the worst levels of nepotism in the appointment of heads of security agencies.
“Hence, President Buhari’s best way to prove to the Nigerians he spoke to in Poland that he is not cloned is to come home as a true Nigerian leader and sign the 2018 amended Electoral Bill into law.”
CUPP alleged that Buhari intentionally withheld assent to the bill so that the ECOWAS deadline can be cited as an excuse for not signing the bill.
“We are also sad to say this to you; that there is intelligence that the President has agreed with his kitchen cabinet not to sign the amendment into law.
“We have been informed that after several undue delays, the President is set to communicate the National Assembly anytime from today that he would not be able to sign the amendment due to the existence of Article 2 of the ECOWAS Protocol on democracy and good governance which prohibits countries from making Electoral Act amendments less than six months to elections unless there is consent of the political parties,” the statement added.
Hmmm,what’s your take on this?
