2023 Elections: We are ready to defend our votes in Katsina – PDP

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in Katsina State assert that they are fully prepared to defend their votes in the state’s upcoming elections for governor and house of assembly.

They would do that in accordance with the electoral law, according to Dr. Mustapha Inuwa, director general of the Atiku/Lado campaign, who made this announcement on Friday in Katsina.

He clarified that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has allowed voters to remain in the voting area until their ballots have been counted after casting their ballots.

Inuwa explained that the PDP is assuring their supporters that they will continue to win the next election because they won the state during the presidential election.

According to him, PDP will not allow any party to manipulate the election results.

He added that democracy has given the electorate the right to vote for the candidate they trust to be their leader, saying that this is what democracy is all about.

He emphasised that their gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Yakubu Lado-Danmarke, did not withdraw from the race as speculated earlier.

According to him, the speculation is a sign of fear of defeat by the other parties, therefore, “we are telling the electorate that Lado-Danmarke will participate in the election.”

Inuwa further called on the people across the 34 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state to come out en masse on March 18 to vote for the PDP.

Inuwa denied the allegation that PDP is planning to bring thugs from neighbouring states, saying these are plans to blackmail PDP. (NAN)
