PDP vows to resist attempt to rig it out in future elections
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it will, henceforth, resist any attempt to rig it out in future elections, beginning with the Osun governorship election scheduled for September 22. PDP made the vow in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Tuesday in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said that it had become manifest that the ruling party was interested in rigging elections, saying the PDP would henceforth contend with such in all ramifications and magnitude, to discomfit it in all coming elections. He said that the PDP had thoroughly reviewed all infractions and vowed to never again allow the use of foul means to usurp power as it was done in the past and merely ask the PDP to go to court.
Ologbondiyan said that the PDP had particularly reviewed the rigging of Edo state governorship election in 2016, the July 14, Ekiti state governorship election and the last Saturday’s elections for senatorial districts in Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi federal constituency by-elections in Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi states. He said that the review revealed that the PDP won in all the elections but was viciously manipulated out by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
