Kogi governorship election: Nobody can stop us, says PDP

By Valentine Amanze

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has assured that it would win the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State.
It also said that no amount of threats, harassment and attempts to intimidate its members and supporters by compromised
security agents would deter it from standing together in victory, with the people of Kogi State in the November 16 governorship election.
Through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party assured that the people of Kogi State would vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC), which it alleged, had only brought poverty, deprivation, suicide, wanton looting, impunity and total disregard to the wellbeing of citizens.
The PDP also raised the alarm that gunmen dressed in military uniform had been invading homes of PDP members including the Chairman of Okene council chapter of the party, Musa Adelabu, who the gunmen abducted to an
unknown destination.
It stressed: “Only three days ago, another vocal member of the PDP in Kogi State,
Abdlu-salam Kunaye, was picked up in a similar manner.
“The PDP has information that the assailants were sponsored and detailed by desperate elements in APC that have become frenetic over the overwhelming rejection of their party in Kogi State.
“The APC is aware that it has already lost grounds in Kogi state, following its woeful performance in the last four years under the out-going Governor Yahaya Bello, and as such, it is seeking ways to muscle its way by manipulations, harassment, coercing and bullying, which will be resolutely resisted by the people of Kogi State.”
The PDP alleged that a long list of Kogi citizens and PDP supporters had been submitted to compromised security
agents, while urging the Police and the military high command to
curb the situation.

The main opposition Our party therefore demanded the immediate release of its Okene council chairman and all those abducted, as their incarceration was already raising tension capable of sparking serious consequences.
“The people of Kogi State are looking up to the PDP to rescue the state from tyranny and nothing can stop them from achieving their resolve of voting in the PDP, which is their party of choice, in the November 16 governorship election,” it said.
