The People’s Democratic Party PDP has bashed at the Kano state governor Alhaji Umar Ganduje, over his comments on the re-run elections coming up in Rivers state.

Gov Ganduje who is the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign for the December 10 re-run elections in the state, had last week said having a free and fair election is not normal in the South South part of the country.

The PDP in a statement through its National Publicity Secretary Prince Dayo Adeyeye, however condemned the utterances of the governor saying it was unfortunate for a governor to make such an unguided statement that denigrate the people of the whole State and the South-South Region in general.

According to the party,  “This statement coming from the Governor is not only unfortunate; it is ridiculous and absurd to say the least. It is also a veil threat that the coming election in Rivers State will be manipulated as usual by the APC using the INEC.”

PDP in the statement claimed that the desperation of the APC to win at all cost was exposed by the recent decision of the Court of Appeal which upturned the Re-Run Election in Opobo/Nkoro State Constituency of Rivers State in favour of Mr. Diri Adonye; wherein the Appeal Court emphatically stated that the Election was massively rigged.

PDP further said; “Alhaji Ganduje’s statement is also an indictment on INEC because the Governor is saying in effect that INEC has never conducted a free and fair election in the Region and INEC should respond immediately to defend its own integrity.”

The party called on all its members in the state to come out enmass on Saturday, the 10th of December to cast their votes in the remaining Re-Run elections.
