Badaru predicts ‘landslide’ win for APC in Bayelsa



The Governor of Jigawa State, Mohammed Abubakar Badaru has called for smooth conduct of the November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa.

Badaru, who also doubles as the chairman of the 56-member All Progressive Council (APC) National Campaign Council for Bayelsa State, expressed optimism his party would win the election.

The governor, who was fielding questions from journalists moments after the jumat prayer on Friday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, noted that APC would not tolerate any form of rigging during election.

He said: “We are very prepared for Bayelsa election and the state is open for us to take. They (Bayelsa citizens) should remain peaceful, and do one-man-one-vote, one -woman-one-vote and we know we will win. We will not tolerate any form of rigging or ballot box snatching and if it is done that way, the APC will win with a landslide.
