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

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to desist from using “its extrapolations on violence” as cover and justification to manipulate the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State.

Recall that INEC had issued a statement days ago wherein it said that it’s biggest worry yet over the forthcoming election in Kogi State was the usual outbreak of violence.

The PDP instead told INEC and other political stakeholders in the state to warn Governor Yahaya Bello and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from any act of violence during the election.

The party in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Thursday, also claimed that it was already aware of alleged “heinous plots” by the governor to orchestrate violence as a strategy to manipulate and win the election.

“The PDP wants INEC and Governor Yahaya Bello to note that the November 16 election is a determined march by the people against a suppressive, cruel, chaotic, sadistic, acrimonious and inhuman administration.

“It is a determined march against acute poverty, hunger and starvation, fear, general low life and despondency in the state, which Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC represent,” the party said.
