The Federal Government Monday uncovered another plan by the opposition to discredit the forthcoming general election before it is conducted.
It said the opposition is plotting to send a 10-man delegation to some foreign countries in order to blackmail the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of alleged moves to rig the elections.
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed raised the fresh alarm at a briefing in Abuja.

He said: “Today, still based on credible intelligence, we can reveal that the opposition is moving a step further. They are working hard to discredit the forthcoming election before, during and after the polls.
“Specifically, they are sending a delegation to some Western capitals, including London, Brussels and Washington, DC, to push the concocted line that the Buhari Administration has perfected the plan to rig the polls.
“They are therefore pushing for a rejection of the results if the President wins re-election. They are also predicting carnage in the event of the President’s victory.”
