The Kano state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the cancellation of supplementary polls across the 28 local government areas of the state.
The Acting Chairman of the party, Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, made the call in a news conference in the state today.
Calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Bichi said the entire process has been marred by armed political thugs, hence the need for cancellation.
“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. He said
According to the acting chairman, the thugs were allegedly deployed from Plateau, Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, and other neighboring states and were fully armed.
The chairman further alleged that the thugs voted spontaneously with the PVCs that did not belong to them, while some disguised as INEC Ad-hoc staff.
He said as a peace-loving party, the PDP had alerted security agencies in addition to writing a Letter of Caution to the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state on the situation.
