Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
The Kaduna state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has uncovered plans by All Progressives Congress, APC, agents to destroy billboards and posters of APC candidates in the state, so as to frame the PDP of vandalizing its (APC’s) billboards ahead of Thursday PDP Presidential campaign in the state.
Kaduna state PDP had last week condemned the destruction of its posters by thugs believed to be agents of the APC ahead of the visit of the APC presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, to Kaduna.
A statement by Deputy Director General of the PDP Campaign Organisation, Danjuma Bello Sarki, said the plan by the APC is to use thugs to go round in the night ahead of the coming of the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday, to destroy billboards of APC and make it appear like the PDP is retaliating what the APC did to it last week.
Bello Sarki said it is unfortunate that some politicians would be planning such when the people of the state are looking forward to vibrant leadership and ideas that will ensure the development of the state.
He urged the people of the state to identify the party that has a positive mind towards developing the state and the one that is not prepared to do things that will add value to the lives of the citizenry.
He said: “This is why the people of the state need to vote for the PDP so that we can move away from divisive tendencies and step into the future with assurance of social and infrastructural development.
“We call on our teeming supporters to remain law abiding and resist any attempt to provoke them as we begin the countdown to the general elections where they will be expected to exercise their rights as citizens and vote out bad government,” he stated.
He called on the security agencies to be on alert and fish out those trying, through subtle means, to cause disaffection in the state, adding that “the well-being of the people of the state is more important than any individual.”
He said people should come out in their large numbers to welcome the presidential candidate of the PDP as he arrives Kaduna for the presidential campaign rally.
