Supplementary elections: PDP talk tough over Saturday’s rerun in Kano, Benue, Sokoto, others

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has declared that it was ready to resist and dismantle all rigging machines, ahead of this Saturday’s supplementary election.

PDP said it will deal with thugs dressed in military uniforms seeking to aid rigging of the March 23 supplementary elections.

In a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Thursday, the opposition said it will checkmate all plots to rig or mar the forthcoming supplementary polls.

PDP stated that it was ready to “confront, resist and dismantle all rigging machinery” in a bid to consolidate on its already established victory in the March 23 supplementary governorship elections.

“Our structure and followership in Sokoto, Kano, Adamawa, Plateau, Bauchi and Benue states have been fully rallied at all levels of polling and collation process to resist any attempt by anybody to manipulate.

“We charged all our members, teeming supporters and all lovers of democracy in these states to remain steadfast in resisting the APC and marching out en-mass to their polling units this Saturday to consolidate their victory against oppressive forces in our land,” the party said.
