PDP asks Buhari to call for investigation into violence recorded in Bayelsa, Kogi Governorship Elections
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday asked President Buhari to summon the nation’s service chiefs and order a presidential investigation into the violence recorded in the elections.
This was made known in statement issued and signed by spokesman of the party, Kola Ologbodiyan.
It alleged that a police helicopter was deployed in one of the states to teargas voters, warning that “such a failure, however, registers grave meanings to Nigerians.”
“It is also unfortunate that instead of taking concrete and decisive steps to bring the perpetrators of the heinous crimes in Kogi and Bayelsa to book and give assurances of electoral reforms, Mr President is rather seeking to make discourse of an unattainable third term.
“The PDP urges Nigerians to note Mr President’s well-informed fears that the APC might not survive his tenure,” the party said.
The party accused the APC of causing division and hardship in the country, saying that was why some Nigerians resorted to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options.
“… Mr President should know that Nigerians’ expectation of him, in this second and, of course, last term, is the restoration of rule of law and a legacy of electoral reforms that will guarantee free, fair and credible election in Nigeria.
“Anything short of this is unacceptable,” the PDP said.
