The All Progressive Party (APC) has rejected the proposal made by the National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Col. Sambo Dasuki for the postponement of the February general elections.

Communicating the rejection through Governor Aliyu Wamakko during the Presidential campaign of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Sokoto on Thursday, the party said neither should the election be postponed nor an interim government be formed.

According to Wamakko, the generality of Nigerians were ready for the election and there was no excuse that would be given for the postponement.

“The people of the state and Nigerians in general are ready for the
elections and they must hold as scheduled,” he maintained adding that the PDP-led government was bent on doing anything possible to scuttle the scheduled election because “they have seen the clear hand writing on the wall.

“We are ready for the election; the people of Sokoto state are ready for the election and Nigerians are ready for the election. No political party can manoeuvre to get the elections postponed,” Wamakko stressed.
