The recent outburst by former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo against President Muhammadu Buhari has alerted local and international stakeholders to the plots by the ruling All Progressives Congress party, APC to rig the country's February General elections.

By passing a "vote of no confidence" on the sitting government, the "grandfather" of the country's democracy has drawn attention from all over the world to the forthcoming elections, a member of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Istifanus Gyang said, Thursday.

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the country is equally on the watch for any signs of malpractice during the polls, Mr. Gyang told journalists in Jos the capital of Plateau State.

"Any plans to rig the elections are dead on arrival," he said.

Mr. Gyang, a Senate candidate of the PDP at the inauguration of the party's campaign council for Plateau North said his party was sure of victory in the coming polls.
