Uche Secondus, national chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says Nigeria might go into extinction if the
July governorship election in Ekiti state is rigged.

Speaking at the flag-off of PDP’s
local government election campaign in Rivers state, the opposition leader said
his party would resist any attempt to thwart the will of the people.
He alleged that the All
Progressives Congress (APC) rigged the Kaduna local government election, where
his party won four LGAs, while APC swept 14.
“The forthcoming Ekiti state
election is going to be a litmus test. We warn that if you attempt to rig
Ekiti, it will be a recipe for crisis and we don’t know whether there will be
Nigeria or not,” he said.
“We are bold to say it because
you cannot take the peoples rights, you cannot deny them of their votes and we
are saying and we want APC to say the same that it will be ‘one man, one vote’,
‘one woman, one vote’, ‘one youth, one vote’.
“We will never allow an evil
individual to destroy this nation or to destroy our state. If you like wait for
us, we refuse to be intimidated. We saw all that happened in Kaduna last
Saturday. PDP won in all local government areas, but they over-turned the results.”
Secondus said that with the help
of Nigerians, PDP is united to take over from the APC in 2019.
He said his party would provide
the leadership that will create platforms of the unity for Nigerians.
During a dinner with the
southwest caucus of APC at the presidential villa in Abuja earlier in the week,
President Muhammadu Buhari urged the members of his party to take the mission
to rescue Ekiti from PDP seriously.
