The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has warned of an impending crisis over suspicion that the forthcoming Ekiti State governorship election will be rigged.
Secondus gave the warning during the flag-off of PDP’s Local Government election campaign in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state capital.
He reiterated the stand that the PDP is united to take over governance in 2019 from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) led government with the help of Nigerians, adding that the former ruling party will provide the leadership that will create platforms of the unity of the country, Daily Trust writes.
“The forthcoming Ekiti State election is going to be a litmus test. We saw all that happened in Kaduna last Saturday. PDP won in all local government areas, but they over-turned the results.
“If you attempt to rig in Ekiti State, there will be crisis. We don’t know if there will be Nigeria after that. Our security agencies and INEC should not be deceived into rigging elections”, he warned.
Meanwhile, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, advised PDP candidates to campaign and win election in their respective Local Government Areas.
