Kano state Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s claim on the deployment of political thugs from neighboring states.
Earlier, the PDP’s Acting Chairman in the state, Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, in a news conference accused the APC of importing thugs to the state to disrupt the election process.
Reacting to PDP’S claim, The APC state chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, denied the allegation, while addressing a news conference in Kano today.
“How can we bring or invite people from other states to come to Kano, while we have people here, considering the population of Kano, it is unfortunate that the PDP chairman called for the cancellation of the election, while the election is still ongoing.” He said
“This is a clear indication that they are afraid of losing the election, otherwise, why should he call for the cancellation of the election,” he added
Abdullahi further called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to shun every call for the cancellation of the re-run governorship election.
