cancel the March 23 Kano state Supplementary election following the
disruption of polls and bloodletting by the All Progressives Congress
In a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, he said “the PDP said all
material facts on the supplementary election in Kano state show that
rampaging APC thugs violently took over polling units, attacked and chased
away voters and engaged in massive thumb-printing
and ballot stuffing for the APC.
“INEC is already aware that the Police arrested the Kano State
Commissioner for Special Duties, Muktar Yakasai alongside APC thugs he
led to disrupt election in Yelwa in Dala Local Government area of the
“Also INEC is already aware of how APC thugs attacked voters in polling
units in Gama area of Kano state during which four PDP members were
feared killed and many more injured before they carted away ballot boxes
for stuffing for the APC.
“The PDP cautions INEC to note that in this circumstance, any results
they come out with from this convoluted electoral process will be a sham
and will surely be rejected by the people of Kano state.
“It is completely reprehensible that the APC and Governor Abdullahi
Ganduje would resort to violence and bloodletting as a means to attempt
to hold on to power after they have been rejected by the people.
“The PDP invites Nigerians to note that our party grew democracy for 16
years without watering the quest for power with the blood of the
innocent as the APC has done in the 2019 general election.
“The PDP therefore charges INEC to save the nation from crisis by
cancelling the Kano Supplementary election, as failure to do so is not
in the best interest of our dear nation.
