DIgbawase Ukumba in Lafia
The Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alerted the Governor-elect in the state, Abdullahi Sule, that the party has the capability to do anything and reverse his victory as long as the politics of the state is concerned.
The state Chairman of the party, Francis Orogu, stated this yesterday in Lafia, the state capital, when he briefed journalists shortly after a meeting he held with stakeholders of PDP in the state at the state party’s secretariat.
He said: “Our advice is that the Governor-elect, Abdullahi Sule, can go ahead and smile, but should not be in a hurry to laugh because what goes around comes around. We will consult ourselves and take a position on this matter soon.
“We don’t have any other choice than to appeal to our supporters not to be discouraged by the interference of the security agents in the electoral process.
“There’s a fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials were mostly working for the All Progressives Congress (APC); cancelling elections where we were winning and allowing every mess to go through where APC was manipulating.”
The PDP chieftain continued that the party has gone through all the records which all complaints made by the party were not taken by the returning officers of those elections in Nasarawa State.
He insisted that the PDP would continue to fight within the armpit of the law by doing it legally, adding that consultation to that effect has commenced with leaders of the party in the state to seek their opinions on how PDP can work with the various candidates and reclaim its victory.
According to him, “We have copies of results that differ from what is being presented to the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) and the returning officers, so many of these cases exist in the state as well as the humongous cancelled votes that were manipulated by the returning officers.
“But we want to tell the world that we are not discouraged and we cannot be pinned down by these conspiracies of those agencies that make up the electoral team,” Orogu maintained.
