PDP’s attack on Kebbi deputy governor unacceptable, APC warns

By Haruna Usman, Birnin Kebbi

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, said its attention has been drawn to yet another press release signed by the state secretary of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, where in a desperate attempt to smear the name of Kebbi deputy governor, Alhaji Umar Abubakar Tafida accused him and the state electoral body Kebbi State Independent Electoral Commission, KSIEC, of already concluded the forthcoming local councils polls slated to hold in August, 2024.

The state’s APC spokesperson, Alhaji Isah Assalafy said that the opposition are still licking the wounds of 2023 defeat by the APC hence the reason they are desperately trying to twist the statement of the deputy governor.

He noted that the ban on campaigns has been lifted since the time polls’ date was announced therefore what the deputy governor said was a campaign for his party which is allowed globally.

He said PDP should come out of their shell and begin to campaign as level playing field has been provided for all political parties in the state.

Isah added that the governor’s huge developmental strides have made opposition almost impossible in Kebbi state as such the opposition could not find a crack to capitalise on rather turned to mischievous campaign of calumny against the government to win favours from the voting public.

The APC has threaten to sue the PDP state secretary who signed the press release for defaming the person of the deputy governor of Kebbi state.

Recall that Kebbi deputy governor, in his sallah message on Sunday canvasses support for his party APC where he expressed optimism that they will deliver the local councils polls for the party which the PDP misunderstood as colluding with the state electoral body to compromise the outcome of the polls.
