Secondus told the victorious party flag bearers that if they had contested with the APC, it would have been an easy walkover but they found themselves battling with inec and military operatives.

He lamented that in Rivers state where APC had no candidate, it took extra 10 days to get the result out from the state because overzealous operatives were fighting for a non existence party in the state.

The National Chairman remarked that the introduction of inconclusive and suspension of polling in the country’s electoral process was ostensibly to aide APC to victory through supplementary balloting but they still could not do it in Rivers, Buachi, Adamawa, Sokoto and Benue because of the doggedness of committed democrats in the PDP.

Prince Secondus noted that the brigandage that were deployed in the supplementary election in Kano by the APC administration in the state evidently assisted by security agencies became the height of impunity exhibited by this regime in the concluded election.

The PDP leader said that nothing underscores the desperation of APC administration to hang on to power at all cost irrespective of the consequences of such actions, like the brazen show of might displayed in Kano supplementary election.
