Katsina election results disappoint PDP — Campaign DG

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State has voiced its dissatisfaction with the results of the state’s elections last Saturday, particularly the National Assembly results.

Dr. Mustapha Inuwa, the Director General of the Atiku-Lado Campaign Council, expressed his disappointment to newsmen on Monday in Katsina.

He characterised the results of the elections as disappointing, particularly the results for the House of Representatives and the Senate.

He claimed that the party had previously applauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s efforts regarding the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) cashless policy, which was designed to prevent vote buying.

He said as a result of the confidence the PDP had in the president’s stance on having free and fair elections, the party did not bother to have polling agents in some of the wards.

“We all supported him (president) on his stance of having free elections. But in his own state of Katsina, inducement was openly done,“ Inuwa alleged.

He said INEC also assured the nation that the polls would be credible and that BIVAS would also work.

“We may not have the victory we envisage, but we are not really concerned because of the circumstances during the elections,“ he said.

Inuwa disclosed that the party’s stakeholders would meet soon to discuss the outcome of the elections, saying that they would announce their next line of action.

Commending the people of the state for their support, he called on them not to be discouraged by the outcome of the elections.

He urged them to come out and vote for PDP during the next round of elections. (NAN)
