Spokesman of the PDP in the state, Samuel Wonosike who disclosed this in Port Harcourt, said his party will resist any move that will run contrary to the Electoral Act and the constitution during the election.
Wonosike according to Vanguard said that the PDP was not afraid of going into the election, adding that the Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), should ensure a level playing field for all participating political parties.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call the leaders of the APC in the state to order, saying that they should be cautioned against electoral violence.
