All Progressive Congress have been accused of plotting to disrupt the elections of Kogi and Bayelsa states following her inability to muster support from the electorates due to her unpopular candidates for the gubernatorial elections in the states.
The Peoples Democratic Party in a statement by its alerts that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is inciting violence in Kogi and Bayelsa states with a view to cause confusion, frustrate the electoral process and possibly impede the forthcoming governorship elections in the states.
According to the PDP the APC has realized that it does not have the support of the electorates in the two states, especially given its unpopular candidates, is now employing devious machinations, including violence to terrorize the people, disrupt and eventually truncate the elections.
The statement which was signed by the National Publicity Secretary, of the Peoples Democratic Party Mr. Olisa Metuh Wednesday said the imprints of the APC could be felt in the sudden militancy in Kogi as well as the growing cases of political violence in Bayelsa ahead of the November 21 and December 5 governorship elections in the two states respectively.
The PDP said: “the APC has perfected a heinous plot to inject crisis in Kogi and Bayelsa, ostensibly to frustrate the electoral procedures within the constitutional time frame, so as to prevent PDP candidates, Governors Idris Wada and Seriake Dickson from being re-elected into office”.
“We invite Nigerians to note that the build up to the militancy in Kogi has been long started by the APC and its candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu, who has been fouling the state’s political environment with hate and inciting utterances, including threats to lives of PDP supporters and perceived political opponents.
