This is the hallmark of cheats and the same manner they used in stealing the mandate of the people
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said had uncovered plot by the Nasarawa State government under the leadership of Governor Abdullahi Alhaji Sule to seal up its state headquarters, ahead of the impending Supreme Court judgement.
Chairman of the party in Nasarawa State, Mr. Francis Orogu told journalists that there has been consistent move by the governor to invoke his powers on the party members following a sustained prayer undertaking by widows, other women, youths and some concern citizen of the state at the party secretariat in Lafia.
According to Orogu, “Women, mostly widows, the aged, youths and other concern citizens of the state have been sacrificing their time, resources to pray for the restoration of the stolen mandate given to our party in March 18 this year without constituting nuisance.
“We are aware that a clandestine meeting was held after a meeting with the state security apparatus to perpetrate plot to shut our people out of their prayer session to enable them carryout their nefarious activities against our party”.
PDP said at the last count it was the military and now the police. He said they are aware of a plot to parade an imposter who would confess to be from either Plateau or Nasarawa and paid 5,000 to protest.
“This is the hallmark of cheats and the same manner they used in stealing the mandate of the people.
“It is important to note that as a party, the PDP has a clear and defined process for organizing its activities. We have the most suitable venue in Nasarawa State to host such events, which is our party secretariat.
“We will never resort to renting a crowd from any part of the state outside Lafia not to talk of importing people from the neighbouring states of Benue, Plateau as being alleged”, the PDP state chairman reiterated.
