PDP calls for cancellation of Kano election

Share This

Kano State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the ongoing supplementary governorship election across the 28 local government areas of Kano State.

The party based its call on alleged electoral offences being perpetrated by thugs in the state with security agencies apparently doing nothing to stop them.

The call was made by the acting chairman of the party, Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, while addressing a news conference in Kano on Saturday.

He said there was need for the commission to cancel the election as the process had completely been taken over by armed political thugs.

He said, “Today this charade called re-run election was slated to hold in Kano and other states but unfortunately, what we have in Kano is nothing but a sham.

“Reports reaching us since yesterday indicated that thugs have allegedly been mobilised to take over all the 208 polling units.”

He further said that thugs allegedly brought from Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, Plateau and other neighbouring states and were “armed to the teeth” posing as voters in the polling units in the localities.

According to him, the thugs freely voted with the PVCs that did not belong to them, while some posed as INEC staff.
