The All Progressives Congress and the Kogi State Government has been accused by the Peoples Democratic Party of planning to engage in moves to shift the November 16 governorship election in the state by two weeks.
The PDP Deputy Director Public Communication of the Campaign Council, Mr Austin Okai, stated that the move of the ruling party is coming into play due to the public opinion polls and the general view that the APC governorship candidate will be defeated to the third position if the Independent National Electoral Commission goes on with the Saturday election.
The opposition party charged the electoral body not to concede to the alleged move by the APC that will jeopardise the expectations of the people of the state.
Okai stated that people of the state which have travelled far and near, to vote for the candidate of their choice during the governorship election cannot afford to be disenfranchised.
He charged the commission to go ahead with the election billed for November 16, 2019.
Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, has noted that anyone planning to disrupt Saturday’s governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi States would need to use an atomic bomb if he is to succeed.
He stated this during an interview on Nigeria Info 95.1FM Abuja.
