Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has claimed that an electronic voting machine which the All Progressives Congress, APC, party plans to rig the 2019 presidential election against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abuakar, has been exposed.
Senator Bruce on thursday shared a video of the machine allegedly being test-run in Kaduna state.
He said the machine can allow for multiple voting with just an Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s password. He ended the tweet by calling on the authorities to investigate.
He tweeted, “Information reaching us is that this device, which was first used in Kaduna, may be used in rigging the 2019 election against @atiku. It is alleged that with this machine, you can vote multiple times with an @inecnigeria password. I call on the authorities to investigate this.”

John Oyegun speak on dumping APC for PDP
The former Chairman of APC, John Oyegun finally reacted to rumours on dumping APC for PDP
Oyegun during his interview with THE SUN, pointed out that despite the fact that the party was going through challenges, he will remain a member to help fix the issues.
“I had intended to totally ignore that flown kite. I have almost succeeded in doing that but this will be an opportunity to emphasise that in terms of the thinking, I was basically an originator because I knew that what we were doing while in opposition was wrong.
We in opposition truly want to present our nation with democratic choice. We need to build a party that can be comparable in levels, strength and acceptability to the Nigerian public not for them to keep saying that they don’t like them yet they don’t have choice. Having been an originator to that process, it will be extremely difficult to see myself elsewhere.
Yes, the party has issues and problems, but you don’t run away from the party because it is passing through a phase or difficulty. I cannot run away. I will rather give what I have to patch the cracks.
We will maintain the direction and goals we have set for ourselves otherwise the fluidity of the movement does not make sense and does not show commitment.
Yes, there are difficulties, but they are meant to be addressed, sorted out so that the party does not lose its soul and the message that brought it into being.
Those are the critical issues. The real problem comes if a party stands in danger of losing its bearing in those respects. I am APC and I don’t see myself somewhere else. I cannot just quite envisage it.”
