In a recent allegation against the the ruling All Progressive Congress in the on going supplementary election in Kano State, the People’s Democratic Party has blotted a hot accusation against the APC,
that it had gone to hired political thugs to disrupt the peace and progress of the on going supplementary election in the state, also according to the PDP party state chairman, he said;
“Many have been injured, in fact, a member of the state Assembly representing Gwale, Yusuf Babangida on election duty was attacked and seriously injured.
“ We also have reports of attack on our members in Doguwa, Gwale and Dala, we are collecting the whole list of those attacked,” he said.
The PDP chairman said the party would seek legal redress.
“We are going to pursue our right through legal means. Today is a sad day for Nigerian democracy, especially in Kano
“ Recall that governorship elections were held on March 9 not just in Kano but Nigeria as a whole
“ After the election, results from 43 out of 44 local governments were announced and we were leading, it was only the results from Nasarawa local government were pending and that was because the state deputy governor,
the commissioner for local government and chairman of Nasarawa local government led some thugs to attack the collation centre and disrupt the process by tearing the result sheet
“ That is why INEC called for this supplementary election. As you all know, the Nigerian constitution doesn’t know anything supplementary election; all I know is that we have won our election. What is happening in Kano today is simply foolishness,” he said.
But then the ruling All Progressive party has refute the statement, The Acting State Chairman of the PDP, Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi made this known in the statement, that;
“How can we bring or invite people from other states to come to Kano, while we have people here, considering the population of Kano,’’ he said.
Abdullahi called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to disregard the call for the cancellation of the re-run governorship election and ensure that the election is concluded.
“We are calling on INEC to ensure the successful completion of the exercise.
“It is unfortunate that the PDP chairman called for the cancellation of the election, while the election is still ongoing.
“This is a clear indication that they are afraid of losing the election, otherwise, why should he call for the cancellation of the election,” he said.
According to him, the All Progressives Congress (APC) had done its homework by mobilising its supporters to come out and vote.
The APC chairman, however, called on the residents to remain calm and await the announcement of the final results.
