The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) says the recent allegations by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that opposition parties were conniving with foreign agencies to scuttle the forthcoming elections are a clear sign of their imminent defeat at the polls.

According to a statement issued on Monday by the coalition’s spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere, the CUPP described the allegation as outrightly false, outrageous, baseless and a clear sign of someone being tormented by a guilty conscience and a defeat syndrome.

“Buhari and his cohorts ranting is a clear sign of imminent devastating defeat. They already know Atiku Abubakar will win in a free and fair election come February 16 so they are coming up with all sorts of lies to hide their fear.

“Buhari is scared of international community because of the consequences of his exposed plot to rig the election, using the security agencies and aliens from Chad and Niger.

“They have realized that Atiku will crack them like cracker biscuit hence the reason for this allegation so as to divert attention from their plot to foist huge electoral robbery,” the statement said.

The CUPP advised the country’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed to stop lying through his teeth and face the impending defeat of their ‘worthless government’, adding that the opposition will not accept any electoral robbery.

While denying the alleged plots to use international intelligence agencies to manipulate the outcome of the polls, the CUPP added that the opposition  will not be fooled, nor stand by and watch the evil plans of the APC materialize.

The opposition parties further maintained that the current crisis in Venezuela would not be compared to what will happen in Nigeria should the Buhari administration attempt to manipulate the 2019 elections.
