The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Taraba has cautioned the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state against orchestrating cheap blackmail with alleged plans by the PDP to rig this Saturday’s governorship and State House Assembly elections.
The State’s PDP Publicity Secretary, Andeta’rang Irammae, gave the advice Tuesday while briefing newsmen in Jalingo, the State’s capital.
Recall that the APC had earlier accused the PDP of alleged plans to rig the March 18 polls in the North East State.
Reacting to the allegation, the ruling party publicist admonished the APC to embark on issue-based campaign rather than resorting to cheap blackmail.
He added that the party had ruled the state since 1999, noting that the people of the state had already developed their confidence in the party.
He also accused the APC of thuggery and attack on retired Capt. Douglas Yahaya, the PDP candidate for Donga state constituency, who was on his way to Bibinu for his campaign.
Irammae, who said that the party had already reported the matter to the appropriate authorities, advised the APC to adopt decent ways of politicking in its quest to ascend to power in the state.
He expressed optimism that the party would come out victorious in the governorship election.
He recalled that the party produced two Senators and three House of Representatives members in the State in the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
