He warned the PDP to stop using undemocratic means to continue to remain in power in the state.
But in a swift reaction, the PDP debunked the allegation, saying the APC is only crying foul.
The party’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Bode Ogunmola, said the party already enjoyed the support of the masses and did not need to resort to violence to win election.
He alleged that it was the APC in the state that was planning evil ahead of the forthcoming election.
