THE Director General Bello/Onoja Governorship Campaign Council, Senator Smart Adeyemi has alleged that tye People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is planning to rig both the Governorship and Kogi west senatorial elections respectively.
Addressing newsmen in Lokoja on Friday, Adeyemi said the information reaching them shows that PDP is working very hard to see that they rig the election as PDP have already contacted some one from Oyo State to assist them in rigging the election.
He warned that any attempt to rig the election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will resist them and make sure that whoever is involve will be brought to book.
Senator Adeyemi said APC have already conquered every part of the state as electorates are ready to vote governor Yahaya Bello back to office for second term as he is also sure that the people of Kogi west will vote for him during the senatorial election.
KOGI GUBER: We’ll vigorously resist PDP rigging plan – Adeyemi
**Urges PDP govs, businessmen not to waste money on Wada
Adeyemi who said the rejection of Wada/Aro candidacy by its own party bigwigs has left them with only an option of rigging, also urged governors and business men not to waste their resources on the opposition.
“Former governor Ibrahim Idris has shown us that the PDP candidate is not acceptable or sellable. By chasing out the party candidate who went with Oyo state governor to beg at his residence in Abuja shows clearly there is no hope for the opposition PDP.
“The opposition too are now aware that they have lost it. The only option they are thinking of is to cause mayhem during the election and rig.
“But will will not allow that. They have done it in the past. Rigging is in their DNA. But we will vigorously resist any attempt to rig the November 16 gubernatorial election.
“You cannot expect youths, especially those serving in various capacities in this government, to fold their hands and allow electoral malpractice.
“Ninety per cent of youths in the state have been empowered by the present administration with some of them unemployed before but are presently meaningfully engaged.
“The youths are familiar with the terrain in the state and their cause is helped by the general acceptance of our candidate, Governor Yahaya Bello.
“Already their is confusion and in- fighting within the PDP over the N100 million released to them by a South West governor for their flag off campaign. They are financially incapacitated.
“I advised other PDP governors and businessmen not to waste their resources on the PDP candidate; nothing good can come out of that venture.
“We have already subsumed the PDP and will shall consumed them soon without violence.”
Adeyemi submitted that the incumbent governor’s disposition towards bridging the gap of ethnic divides, youths inclusiveness and spread of projects across the three senatorial axis has earned him his reelection.
