The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned that no amount of threats, harassment and attempts to intimidate its members and supporters by “compromised security agents” will deter it from standing together in victory, with the people of Kogi State in the November 16 Governorship election.
In a statement issued in Abuja by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, the party posited that the people of Kogi State have already made up their minds to vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC), “which has only brought excruciating poverty, deprivation, suicide, wanton looting, impunity and total disregard to the wellbeing of citizens; and nothing can detract from the people’s resolve to free their state from the oppressive clutches of the APC.”
The PDP alerted Nigerians on how gunmen dressed in military uniform have been invading homes of PDP members including the Chairman of Okene LGA chapter of the party, Musa Adelabu, who the gunmen abducted to an unknown destination.
Similarly, it said only three days ago, another vocal member of the PDP in Kogi State, Abdlu-salam Kunaye, was picked up in a similar manner.
The statement added: “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.
