Labour Party Presidential Committee Chairman, Special Duties, Dr. Emeka Mandela has warned Nigerian politicians and the officials of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC against any plot to rig the February 25 and March 11 polls.

Mandela, who gave the warning in an interview with Newsmen in Lagos, also advised all INEC adhoc staffers particularly members of the National Youth Service Corps not to allow themselves to be used to perpetrate electoral fraud in the forthcoming elections.

He admonished them to be of best patriotic behavior and not play into the hands of desperate politicians who only see them as willing tools to achieve their inordinate ambition.

The former presidential hopeful further called on the security agencies to up their game and offer the best of service to the nation by rejecting any offer to suppress the collective will of the people.

He said Nigerian youths are now politically savvy and could go any length to frustrate any plot to rig the elections come what may.

“Our youths are frustrated at the obvious lack of basic amenities, bad roads, lack of electricity and many others”, Mandela said while adding that there is no going back on the clamour for a new Nigeria.

He argued that what the country needs now is a leader with a very strong national appeal, believing that the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi is such a leader.

Mandela posited that Obi has the charisma and skills to lead the most populous black nation.

He described Peter Obi as a very honest and transparent Nigerian with the capacity to improve infrastructure, bolster education systems and strengthen public health when elected and therefore, called on all Nigerians to correct their past mistakes by voting Labour Party in the coming elections.
