The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made fresh vows ahead of the supplementary elections rescheduled for Saturday, March 23.
The party in a statement made available to Naija News on Sunday expressed confidence that it would win all the governorship supplementary elections scheduled for Saturday.
In the statement issued by the national publicity secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja, the party insisted that alleged manipulation by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) would be restricted by the electorates.
Ologbondiyan expressed sadness when he alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) could seek to play the victim when he alleged that all facts had been established that his opposition militarised the recent elections. The party’s secretary, however, expressed his party’s determination to emerge as winners of the supplementary elections across the affected states.
“In Benue, it is clear that the people have rejected the APC as clearly demonstrated even in the presidential election. Benue state has always been home to the PDP.
“It is incontestable that our party has the largest genuine followership in all the units, wards and local government areas of the state and as such does not need any underhand measure to secure victory in any election in the state.
“Our winning lead of 81,000 votes was validly delivered at the polling units and that reality will humiliate the APC as it cannot be subverted, ” he said.
“The results of all the elections held in Rivers, including the State House of Assembly, showed that the PDP is in control of the state,” he furthered.
“In Bauchi, the PDP has already been elected and this reality cannot be altered by the APC.
“INEC had already established that the APC compromised its official to declare Tafawa Balewa LGA as inconclusive and had restored the votes that were stolen by the, ” he said.
