Wada warns Buhari, APC not to set Kogi on fire

17 November 2015, 11:11

Lokoja - Governor Idris Wada of Kogi State on Monday warned President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to set the state on fire by rigging the November 21 governorship election in the state, reports Vanguard.

Wada said any attempt by Buhari and the APC to rob the people of Kogi of their votes will be met with stiff resistance.

Wada, who spoke through his Chief Communications Manager, Phrank Shaibu noted that the harassment of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members by the ruling party is part of the effort to gain unfair advantage at the polls.

He said it is unfortunate that President Buhari is looking the other way while his party engages in dirty and dangerous games to frustrate the PDP and make the election not to be free and fair.

He noted that the recent utterances by the APC candidate, Abubakar Audu in Kabba, asking APC supporters to kill any PDP hoodlum, actually set the tone for the harassment that PDP supporters are currently suffering in Kogi State.
