APC Raises Alarm Over PDP’s Alleged Plots To Scare Voters Ahead Of Bayelsa Polls



National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mai Mala Buni, has said that the party was aware of a ploy by the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) to intimidate eligible voters ahead of the coming Bayelsa State governorship supplementary election in Southern Ijaw Local Government.

The party said the PDP also plans to threaten officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives deployed to ensure peaceful, free and credible supplementary election.

Buni, in a statement yesterday, said the APC was worried by the ‘latest and familiar antics of the PDP which has been beating war drums ahead of the poll.

He said, “While the APC prays for a peaceful, free and credible supplementary elections comes Saturday, security agencies must be on high alert over the dangerous threats by the PDP to cause a breakdown of law and order in Bayelsa state on Saturday.

“Already, the PDP leadership through its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh has issued instructions to PDP members and supporters to “go ahead to use all means necessary” in Saturday’s supplementary election in the Southern Ijaw come Saturday.

“This is among other dangerous threats by the PDP warning of ‘terrible consequences’ to INEC officials and security operatives.

“As the saying goes, history may not repeat itself but it rhymes. It is clear that the PDP is still hung over its old ways of doing things. The days of ‘do-or-die’ politics are over. Never again will the country return to the PDP ways of election fraud and violence. Change has come. We call on the PDP to embrace the new Nigeria where elections are peaceful and votes of the people count.”
