Thugs attack Ondo SDP candidate’s convoy

The Deputy Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Kogi State, Khalid Adams, has described Monday’s attack on the party secretariat in Lokoja by suspected hoodlums as a “coward’s alternative.”

Adams, who disclosed this in a statement, said the attack was not only despicable, but a coward’s alternative by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), which has lost the peoples goodwill as a result of bad governance.

He said the APC has resorted to violence after it failed to stop the gubernatorial bid of the SDP ahead of the November 16 election in the state.

Adams said: “The APC thugs shattered the properties and destroyed windows and louvers on Sunday night and pasted APC governorship posters all over the places.

“That wasn’t satisfactory to them, early this morning they came and razed the party’s secretariat because Natasha Akpoti is contesting election against the state governor.

“Why is APC intimidated? Why are they afraid of SDP?

“They tried to stop us through surreptitious means and it didn’t work. We got judgement from a Federal High Court in Abuja last Thursday which has reinforced our faith, but APC has been jittery and are unleashing violence on the party.”
