The People Democratic Party, PDP, in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State has condemned in its strongest term the rumour making rounds by the All Progressive Congress, APC that the party has no candidate in the coming Council election in Chikun LGA.
Speaking exclusively to Gurara Accord, PDP Chairman in Chikun LGA, Mr. Jona Musa, said, what APC have been purporting is malicious and does not hold water. It is just a wishful thought that can never come to fruition.
“Because of what happened to PDP candidate, Engr. Salasi Musa, in the previous LG election where his victory was in its crookiest form and undemocratically arm- twisted by the APC government in the state, PDP Chikun have unanimously agreed that Salasi should, again, be our sole candidate in this coming election. This is in a way showing our sympathy to him.
“So, if APC is saying we don’t have a candidate it is basically childish. How can a big party like PDP in any election will fail to field a candidate? The claim by the APC has shown that they are jittery, scared and not ready,” said.
The PDP topdog urged party faithful and even non-PDP members who believe in the ability of the party and the numerous admirers of Salasi to shove aside such gravous claims by APC. Salasi is our candidate and he is waxing stronger. He has been up and doing campaigning and we are appreciating Chikun people who are devoting their time and turning up to our campaign venues.
