In a statement issued in Lagos on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said it amounts to dishonesty on the part of the PDP to expect victory in Borno State, where it had a dismal outing during the last general elections.
Mohammed noted that since its loss at the election, the PDP has remained sharply divided.
He stated that for the PDP to be credible and relevant, it must avoid engaging in bare-faced distortion of facts and making ridiculous claims that cannot be supported by available evidence.
