The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in receipt of credible intelligence that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has plotted to use compromised security personnel for a mass arrest of top PDP leaders in Bauchi state so as to put them out of circulation and enable the APC have a field day to rig the supplementary election.
The PDP also has been informed of plots by the APC to unleash its thugs and compromised security agents to storm polling units between 1pm to 3pm to snatch election materials and change results and take them to INEC office in Bauchi for collation and announcement.
The PDP leaders earmarked for the illegal mass arrest by the APC include but not limited to Alhaji Bello Kirfi, Senator Abdul Ningi, Senator Suleiman Nazif, Senator Isa Hamma Misau, Alhaji Hamza Akuyam, PDP Bauchi State Chairman, Hon Salisu Zakari Ningi, Hon Ahmed Yerima, Hon Samaila Burgah, Hon Aminu Tukur as well as PDP leaders and agents in the 29 polling units where elections are holding in the state.
The PDP says Nigerians should hold the APC responsible should any harm befall any of our leaders or members in Bauchi state during and after the elections.
The party however stated that such underhand scheme by the APC will not deter it from standing firm in resisting all aggression and consolidating on our already established victory in Bauchi state.
All our members are at red alert in monitoring the electoral process; we will never allow any alteration of results as delivered at the polling units and that nobody, no matter the machination deployed, can rig us out in this election.
