The Peoples Democratic Party has noted that it will defeat the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Yahaya Bello, in Kogi State on Saturday.
The opposition party noted that no manner of violence will stop it from defeating Bello and APC in all the senatorial zones of the state on Saturday.
PDP in a statement through its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, also condemned the attack on the state secretariat of the Social Democratic Party on Sunday by thugs.
The party claimed that it has information about how the state Governor and his agents have been threatening the lives of PDP leaders in Kogi Central.
PDP stated that this is an agenda by APC to instill fear in the people and frustrate their campaigns in the area.
The opposition party cautioned the Kogi State governor that nothing will stop the party and Engr Musa Wada, from campaigning in Kogi Central and across the state.
“The people of Kogi state are on the move with the PDP in their readiness to confront and dismantle the machinations of Yahaya Bello and no amount of violence and death threat can change this resolve.”
“The PDP calls on the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the military hierarchy to note how Gov Bello is turning Kogi state into a theatre of war and making life unsafe in the state.”
The party draw the attention of security agencies to the report that the ruling party and agents of Yahaya Bello are training thugs in Kogi Central District that would be later armed with dangerous weapons to perpetrate violence during the election.
“There are also reports that the APC and agents of Yahaya Bello are sewing fake military, police and Civil Defence uniforms to be used by their thugs to cause mayhem during the election.
“The PDP, therefore, charges the Inspector General of Police and the military hierarchy to immediately call Yahaya Bello and the APC to order as well as take urgent steps to ensure adequate security to safeguard lives and property in the electioneering time frame of the November 16 election in the state.”
