Senator Shehu Sani, the APC Senator who is representing Kaduna Central has made known his thoughts on APCs allegations against the PDP.
The APC had alleged that the PDP is 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’”.

The political season comes with expression of thoughts and counter expressions. This is evident in the proclamations of the present political gladiators. This time, it is Uche Secondus speaking on the APC and President Buhari.
The National Chairman of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus says Nigeria under the watch of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has collapsed.
Secondus said this while speaking in Aba, Abia State, Wednesday, when the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his vice, Mr. Peter Obi held an interactive session with the South East business community.
The national chairman lamented the rising level of insecurity in the country, which he said led to the assassination of the former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh.
According to him, Buhari was not in charge and not worried about state of Nigerians.
“Our country is in distress. Our economy has collapsed. Security has collapsed. Badeh was killed because there is no security; you can see where we are today.
“Buhari is not in charge. He is not worried about what Nigerians are suffering. He is passing the bulk. Atiku will not pass the bulk; he will take full responsibility of the economy and the country.
“We must weep for our country. In the last three years, we are lagging behind in virtually every sector.
“APC is dancing on the grave of farmers killed by herdsmen. Farmers no longer go to their farms. Atiku’s priority is to provide security and the next thing is to unlock the abundant potentials of the country”, Secondus assured.

The Nigerian Air Force has come out to refute and clear the air on the issues surrounding the death of the late Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh.
It says contrary to remours, Alex Badeh was provided with the “full complement of personal staff and security personnel, commensurate with his status as a former Chief of the Air Staff, CDS and a 4-star general in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.”
This clarification was released to dispel rumours and comments in the media surrounding the killing of the late CDS on Tuesday.
In a statement, on the verified Twitter handle of the Airforce, @NigAirForce, it was stated that it has been rumoured that the driver of late Badeh, who was shot during the attack had also died.
Part of the statement read, “Some of these reports erroneously state that the driver of the late former CDS, who was also shot during the incident, is dead. Other reports allege that adequate security was not provided for the deceased Air Chief Marshal.
“The NAF wishes to state categorically that nothing could be further from the truth. Firstly, the driver is alive and recuperating extremely well at one of our NAF Hospitals.
“Secondly, Air Chief Marshal Badeh has always been provided with the full complement of personal staff and security personnel commensurate with his status as a former Chief of the Air Staff, CDS and a 4-star general in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“As mentioned by the CAS, on 19 December 2018, the NAF is working closely with other relevant security agencies to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of the former CDS with a view to ensuring that the perpetrators of the heinous act are brought to justice.
“Substantial progress has already been made in the ongoing investigation and details would be communicated at the appropriate time. While appreciating the overwhelming show of support received from well-meaning Nigerians during this trying time.”
Alex Badeh died on Tuesday from gunshot wounds. He was attacked Abuja-Keffi road.
