The Senator representing Kaduna Central District in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has dared members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to take up the challenge by spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Buba Galadima, to swear by the Holy Books that they neither bought votes nor rigged the 2019 elections.
Galadima had challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to take the lead by swearing by the Qu’ran that he defeated Atiku in the presidential race without any form of malpractices.
He had said: “The election was a national embarrassment. It was far from being free and fair. Not only that, it was clear to everybody that INEC, the military, and the police all colluded to work for APC
“The whole world knows that Atiku defeated Buhari hands down but the election was heavily rigged in Buhari’s favour.
“I boldly challenge Buhari and other APC leaders to swear with the Holy Quran, and the Bible if they were sure that Buhari won that election.
“If they are sure that Buhari defeated Atiku, Buhari, and APC leaders should take up my challenge.
“I’m throwing this challenge openly, I’m making it public, and I’m waiting for any of them who is bold and sure of himself to take up this challenge.”
Reacting through his Twitter handle on Sunday, Senator Sani, a former APC chieftain, said: “Nobody in the ruling party can take up Galadima’s challenge and swear by the Holy Book that he never bought votes or rig election to win.
“They are now waiting to take the oath of office, which is not different from taking Quaker Oats.”
