South Kaduna Attack Plan, Disenfranchisement – PDP

By Abdullahi Ahmad Bamalli

The Kaduna People’s Democratic Party expressed concern over more attacks in southern Kaduna ahead of Saturday’s gubernatorial and state legislature elections.

Kaduna PDP Chairman Felix Hyat made a statement in Kaduna on Thursday.

“The PDP in Kaduna state is worried that the attackers may be playing out a script designed to scare, displace, and ultimately suppress the votes of the people of Southern Kaduna. The pattern, nature, and timing of the attacks, especially after a period of relative peace in the area, is quite suspicious,” the statement said.

The party condemns this attack and calls on the security forces to act more actively and resolutely in the fight against the threat to the survival and democracy of the people of Kaduna.

“We also call on the people to remain calm and also be vigilant by promptly reporting any and all suspicious movements in their areas to the appropriate authorities. We appeal to everyone not to give in to the antics of those behind the attacks by taking the laws into their own hands,” the PDP statement added.

It states that no one should create opportunities for violence in the area or use punitive measures that result in the postponement, annulment or falsification of elections in the location.

The PDP chairman urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to be disturbed by the growing insecurity in Southern Kaduna.

“We want to say that the people of the zone are unshaken in their resolve to be peaceful and participate in the next round of elections on March 18, 2023, no matter the level of provocation,” the party stressed.
