The Peoples Democratic Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO through its Director of Media and Publicity, Chief Fani Kayode, has debunked various claims by the All Progressives Congress that its party was planning to rig Saturday’s election in Lagos state.
Chief Fani Kayode said the allegation of rigging levelled against his party was out of desperation by the APC.
He said: “The problem that the APC has and the reason that they make such asinine and stupid allegations is because they actually believe that they own Lagos state and all those that live there.
He denied knowledge of any secret meeting where the President and other party members planned to rig Saturday’s elections in the state:
“They are now in a state of panic because for the first time in 16 years they are facing a formidable challenge and they know that Jimi Agbaje of the PDP is likely to win. The truth is that there was no secret meeting in which rigging was planned by the President and neither is it true that materials were smuggled in to rig Lagos state.
“The only people that are interested in rigging and in milking any cash cows are the APC themselves and they can rest assured that we will resist them at all levels. We will not only keep them on their toes at the Federal level by being eternally vigilant but we will also provide them with the most aggressive, relentless, focused and assertive opposition that Nigeria has ever known.
