APC Plots Disruption Of Kogi, Bayelsa Polls -PDP


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.
