Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP spokesperson, in a statement, said leaders of the APC are accusing the monarchs of taking sides with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Leaders of the ruling party are boasting and threatening that if they win, they will force them out by setting up state House of Assembly panel to indict them of corruption and force them out using presidential support.

“They are also considering the use of the CJN option against these respected monarchs. This move to drag the sacred stools of the forefathers of these two states is an invitation to full blown anarchy.

“The move to militarise Sokoto and write figures from selected polling units has been perfected like they did in Rivers State and we must stand
up against that.

“We called on the people of Kano and Sokoto states to not just vote, but vote and defend their votes for their future and the preservation of the stools of their forefathers.

“They must also arrest and grab any vote buyer at polling units using the Opposition Code 20 powers of private arrest.

“The APC government should not try with rigging because the tension is higher than that of 1983 and any of such move will spell doom for our democracy. Our final advice for them is to allow the will of the people to prevail.”

Meanwhile, Former Kano governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on Tuesday said that the governorship supplementary election scheduled for Saturday in Kano State would determine the credibility of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

,Mr Kwankwaso, now a senator, said this in an interview with BBC Hausa service, monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Damaturu, Yobe.

“The INEC’s credibility or otherwise will be assessed by the way and manner it will conduct the Kano State re-run election come March 23,’’ the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said.

The re-run elections will be conducted in 234 polling units, in more than 88 registration areas (wards) of 30 local government areas.

The elections will make up the 141,694 votes cancelled by INEC in the March 9 Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state.

Kano State is one of the five states where INEC declared the March 9 elections inconclusive.

The PDP had scored 1,014,474 votes against the All Progressives Congress (APC) which scored 987,819 votes. (NAN)
