– The APC and the PDP in Kogi continue to trade words ahead of the state’s governorship election
– The ruling APC has accused the opposition PDP of encouraging violence through its rallies
– The campaign council of the APC, however, urged their supporters urged its supporters to remain calm
The All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council in Kogi has warned the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) not to conduct violent rallies across the state.
The APC specifically asked the candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming governorship election in the state, Engineer Musa Wada, not to wage violence against the people of the state.
The campaign council through its spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, was reacting to the recent the loss of lives and destruction of property that heralded a PDP rally in the state
“Anyone that run foul of the law will face the full wrath of the law no matter how high the person thinks he is,” Fanwo warned in a statement sent to journalists on Sunday, October 6
He continued: “We have viewed with sadness, the heartless, mindless, callous, soulless, uncharitable and needless loss of lives and property as a result of the violent entrance of Musa Wada into the state.
“Kogi has moved away from thuggish and violent politics and any attempt to introduce that will be resisted by the peace-loving people of the state through constitutional means.”
The APC urged its supporters to remain calm and avoid any form of reprisals.
The ruling party said it is a law-abiding entity, adding that its record is enough to win the forthcoming election.
“Wada’s desperation stems from a sense of defeat and a scheme to ensure the election is postponed because he is unprepared.
“His glaring rejection across the state has reminded him of a new Kogi state where politically incompetent and unknown people can no longer play the ethnic card to hoodwink the people,” the APC said.
Fanwo recently stated that Wada “doesn’t know anything about the state he aspires to govern.”
The APC spokesman was reacting to claims by Wada that there is a federal medical centre in Kabba.
