The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in receipt of credible
intelligence that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has plotted to use
compromised security personnel for a mass arrest of top PDP leaders in
Bauchi state so as to put them out of circulation and enable the APC
have a field day to rig the supplementary election.
A statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan said “The PDP also has been
informed of plots by the APC to unleash its thugs and compromised security
agents to storm polling units between 1pm to 3pm to snatch election
materials and change results and take them to INEC office in Bauchi for
collation and announcement.
“The PDP leaders earmarked for the illegal mass arrest by the APC include
but not limited to Alhaji Bello Kirfi, Senator Abdul Ningi, Senator
Suleiman Nazif, Senator Isa Hamma Misau, Alhaji Hamza Akuyam, PDP Bauchi
State Chairman, Hon Salisu Zakari Ningi, Hon Ahmed Yerima, Hon Samaila
Burgah, Hon Aminu Tukur as well as PDP leaders and agents in the 29
polling units where elections are holding in the state.
“The PDP says Nigerians should hold the APC responsible should any harm
befall any of our leaders or members in Bauchi state during and after
“The party however stated that such underhand scheme by the APC will not
deter it from standing firm in resisting all aggression and
consolidating on our already established victory in Bauchi state.
“All our members are at red alert in monitoring the electoral process; we
will never allow any alteration of results as delivered at the polling
units and that nobody, no matter the machination deployed, can rig us out
in this election.”
