Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has reacted to the All Progressives Congress, APC’s allegation of procuring Russian hackers to penetrate Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, servers ahead of the 2019 general elections.
APC had alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had hired the services of a Russian hacker in other to break into the server of the INEC, to manipulate 2019 election results.
Reacting to the claims, Sani said such allegation by the ruling party is ‘an excuse’ as it is untenable for Russia to meddle with 2019 election. According to him, such claim is ‘foolish’ and a myth.
Sani, therefore, urged President Buhari’s government to ensure free and fair election in 2019 as the world would be watching Nigeria
In a post on his Twitter page, the Kaduna lawmaker wrote; “The conjecture that Russia will meddle or temper with our elections if the electoral bill is signed and applied is baloney.
“Its an untenable mythical tale adopted and advanced as an excuse.
“The Government must commit and submit itself to free elections as ‘The World is watching us’”.
