PDP tells Buhari - Warn APC against making trouble during Kogi, Bayelsa elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to warn members of the All Progressives Congress against inciting violence during Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

The party gave this warning in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, on Thursday in Abuja.


According to him, the PDP was aware that the APC was planning to create tension in Kogi and Bayelsa ahead of the elections.

He said, “the thugs unleashed on the campaign train of Gov. Seriake Dickson on Tuesday was a clear test-run of APC machinery to create violence ahead of the Bayelsa Dec. 5 election.

“Intelligence report available to us shows that this brazen attack on Governor Dickson was not spontaneous.


“It is part of a well-hatched plot to create an atmosphere of insecurity in the state, ostensibly to pave way for their violence-driven rigging strategy.

“The strategy that includes the deployment of APC controlled security forces to frighten and intimidate voters as was the case in the Borno bye-election,’’ he said.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari, as the leader of the nation and a huge beneficiary of the credible election organised by the PDP, to take immediate steps to rein-in APC members and their actions.


“Their actions in Bayelsa state are capable of triggering a resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta region.’’

Metuh said that Bayelsa and Kogi were clear strongholds of the PDP.

“Moreover, the people of these states are not in any way ready or willing to accept any results that do not in full measure reflect their wishes and aspirations at the polls,’’ he said.
