The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has reiterated that there will be no escape route for election riggers in 2019 as he warns the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conduct free and fair election and avert crisis.
Speaking at the Ilorin metropolitan mini-sports stadium on Wednesday at a rally to kick off the PDP North Central Presidential rally in Kwara state, Secondus said that his party would not accept the outcome of a rigged election.
The PDP National Chairman told the crowd drawn from the six states of Kwara, Niger, Nasarawa, Benue, Kogi and Plateau that make up the zone that the party has chosen a rescuer in the person of the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and his Vice Peter Obi.
According to a statement from the National Chairman’s media office signed by ike Abonyi, Secondus said that the All Progressives Congress, APC leaders are afraid of the PDP flag beaeers because of the credibility and rich record of performance they possess.
Secondus noted that APC leaders have exhausted their lies and have come to the end of the road since the people cannot be fooled all of the time.
“Atiku Abubakar is a man set out by providence to rescue this country from the APC mess and we must give him our votes.
“He is the man destined to make Nigeria work again and he would end hunger and unite Nigerians once again,” he said.
Secondus, who called for a minute silence in honour of persons killed by herdsmen in the North Central zone, remarked that Atiku is the man who will end killings in the country.
The National Chairman also delivered some words of warning to the Police and other security operatives who might want to connive with INEC and the All Progressives Congress, APC, to thwart the will of the people, that they would be stoutly resisted since the voters are determined to act as electoral soldiers to guard and protect their votes.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who is also the Director General of the Presidential Campaign of the party told the rally that Atiku is the only person with the wherewithal to tackle the challenges facing the country.
On his part the Presidential candidate, Atiku assured the people that with their mandate he would drastically address the myriads of the problems facing the country.
The highpoint of the rally which attracted top PDP leaders from the North Central zone was the handing over of victory flags to the Presidential candidate and PDP gubernatorial flag bearers in five states of Benue, Niger, Nasarawa, Plateau and Kwara excluding Kogi whose governorship election is due later in 2019
