Former Minister of Defence, Lt. General Theophilus Danjuma rtd has raised the alarm of an alleged plot to use undemocratic ways to rig the 2019 general elections.
The retired general alleged that there were clandestine moves to cause civil unrest in Taraba, with the hope of making the governorship election inconclusive.
He dropped the allegations at the commissioning of medical laboratories in Takum on Tuesday.
He called on the electorates to guard their votes and avoid all forms of provocation before, during and after the elections.
He said “We are in the eve of election and if you want another four years for our able governor, we must work for peace.
“Those who do not wish us well will want us to fight ourselves, then they will use soldiers and police to destabilise us and rig the election.
“It will be in our best interest to ensure there is peace. We should suffer all provocation because there are going to be plenty between now and the time of election.
“They will provoke you to fight yourselves because they know they will loose if there is a peaceful election.
“I beg everyone of you to help maintain peace so we can have a peaceful election and that there are no surprises and will be no postponement.”
