The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, to steer clear of all PDP strongholds, especially the Niger Delta region during the March 9th elections.
The party also advised Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to perish thoughts of using thugs to muscle the Akwa-Ibom governorship and state assembly elections, as the people have been fully rallied for a firm resistance on Saturday.
In a statement on Wednesday, the PDP said it’s position is based on the on-going heavy shipment of security forces and armed thugs into PDP strongholds, particularly, the Niger Delta region, with the view to suppress voters and manipulate the electoral process.
It said since the alleged robbery of the PDP’s Presidential mandate, which Nigerians are determined to reclaim at the tribunal, the APC has been jittery over the escalated public support for the opposition party.
While accusing the APC of plots to unleash violence in oil rich Akwa-Ibom, Rivers, Cross River, Delta, Bayelsa, Abia, as well as Benue, Taraba, Gombe, Sokoto, Enugu, Ebonyi, Kwara, the PDP said these states and all other strongholds of the PDP remain impregnable.
