The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, Isa Ashiru, on Wednesday called on his teeming supporters to stand by their votes during the forthcoming elections in the state.
He also told them, to shun intimidation from any quarters, shun violence but should not allow themselves to be cowed to rig the election under whatever guise.
Ashiru, who made the calls while addressing his supporters in Kwoi, the headquarters of Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, alleged that, the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded plans to annul election in the area which he referred to as mere intimidation.
“I heard them saying that even if you vote the PDP, that your votes will not matter, because in the end, your votes will be annulled. let me tell you, what they are trying to achieve by that kind of propaganda, the APC has nothing more to offer.
“They want to send fear and doubts in your minds so that you will not come out and cast your votes to achieve the change that will improve your wellbeing from the terrible leadership Kaduna State and Nigeria had witnessed under the APC.
“Don’t be intimidated. Let your spirit be high. Victory is at hand because even our rivals can see and feel it loud and hard.
“The solution to that game of the mind against you is simple. Come out en mass, vote, watch your votes, ensured it is well counted, get decumented evidence and escort your votes to the next collating centre.
“The PDP has no money to bribe you for votes. Our blueprint for taking Kaduna state out of this bad situation and the people behind this plans is enough incentives”, he stated.
His running mate, Hon. Sunday Marshall Katung, who also addressed the mammoth gathering said, “the APC is now chasing you with what is called, ‘Trade Money.
“That thing is ‘bribe money.’ It is out of fake love and fake concern to the suffering they have caused you since they came to power.
“Be weary of anyone who snubbs you in the daytime, then comes in the night with a gift professing love because you have something to offer him.
