The People Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State are calling on its teeming supporters to ignore the campaign of calumny by the scary and defeatist All Progressive Congress (APC), against its candidate, Hon. Simon Mathias that he has been barred by the court from contesting in the 4 September, 2021 LG election in Kaura.
The statement is contained in a press statement signed by Kaura LG PDP Secretary, Hon. Yakubu Swanta on the heel of the damaging information spewing from the rumour mill, which is aimed at de-marketing the PDP candidate in tomorrow’s election.
“We woke up to read some baseless nonsense written by the APC in Kaura LG about the Candidate of the PDP in tomorrow’s council elections,” the statement stated. Adding that, “They ignorantly and mischievously purported that the PDP candidate presented fake certificates and documents and was barred by a court order from contesting in the elections. This is spurious, baseless and misleading and nothing but a figment of their imagination. The APC are only playing a reckless and politically dangerous game in the face of losing the election.”
The statement went further, “The candidate of the PDP has NOT been served with any court order from any court, as all his documents are intact and genuine and can be presented on demand by any constitutional authority. We are challenging the APC to produce such an order or shut up. We also want to inform the APC that we shall seek redress in a court of competent jurisdiction for defamation of character of our candidate should they continue their shameless actions.
“We call on all our teeming supporters to remain calm and conduct themselves in an orderly and peaceful manner before, during and after the elections tomorrow. All PDP members are enjoined to vote massively for all PDP candidates in the elections tomorrow and in the future.”
