By Alex Uangbaoje, Kaduna
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kaduna Central Senatorial zone, senatorial candidate in the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections, Lawal Adamu Usman, popularly known as Mr. LA, has accused the State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), of rigging the elections inside government house.
The PDP candidate, who also rejected the entire results, said he and his party are heading to Elections Tribunal to challenge what he called “fraud”.
According to Mr. LA, an insider was feeding them with all what was going on at the government house on how the elections were been rigged, saying, “they sat down in government house to write results and claimed they have won.
“The state government and inec connived to rig the elections, we have strong evidences against them and we shall use them at the tribunal. Our agents were arm twisted, intimated and harassed by the APC.”
“We find it saddening, embarrassing and ridiculous that the state government and the ruling party in the state went as low as to temper with the mandate voluntarily and collectively given by the people; a mandate freely given and universally acknowledged.
“Consequent upon this, and for the avoidance of doubt, we state here that we are committed to exploring all available lawful, constitutional and democratic windows to ensure that the people’s stolen mandate is reclaimed and restored. Accordingly, we hereby announce in categorical terms that we reject the process that led to the announcement of that manipulated, fabricated and concocted results, and call for their immediate cancellation.
“Finally, we wish to reiterate the call for all the people of Kaduna State, and in particular the good people of Kaduna Central District not to relent in their democratic struggle for a meaningful in the state – a change we can see, feel and use – by coming out enmasse once again to assert their right to select leaders that would responsibly shape their future.
“Notwithstanding the ugly and shameful act of desperation shown by the state government and the ruling party, we remain committed to the overall peace of the state and communal harmony based on our abiding faith that only God gives power to whomever He wills.” He added.
