Attack on Wada shows Gov Bello is jittery —PDP



PDP urges NASS to probe Buhari, recover N14tn allegedly stolen under his govt

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the Saturday attack on the convoy of its Kogi State governorship candidate, Musa Wada.

The party said the attack by thugs alleged to be working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) showed that the state ruling party and Governor Yahaya Bello had become discomfited over “Wada’s soaring popularity across Kogi State, which signals an impending inevitable electoral defeat for the APC.”

The opposition party stated this in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Condemning the attack, which reportedly left one person dead, the PDP called on Nigerians to note how the APC attacked the venue of “our governorship primary and having failed to stop us from producing a credible candidate, have now resorted to making attempts at the life of our candidate, knowing that he is already coasting to victory.”

The PDP, however, cautioned the APC to “note that there is a limit to what the people of Kogi State, who have made up their minds to vote in Engr. Wada as their next governor, can stomach, particularly at this critical time.”

The party added, “If anything, this attack on our candidate has further united the people of Kogi State behind our party, in their readiness to take back their state, no matter the machination of the APC.”
