The last local government elections in Kaduna State have confirmed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is dead in the state, the Political Adviser to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Alh. Uba Sani, has said
Alh. Sani stated this while reacting to allegation by the PDP that he masterminded the rigging of the just concluded local government election in favour of the ruling APC, adding that the PDP couldn’t have won a single seat if the election was not free and fair.
He said the ruling party was upright to have allowed the opposition party win in four local government councils out of those declared so far by the state electoral body, noting that if the APC government was out to rig the election, the state would have adopted manual voting and manipulated the process the way other states did.
“You and I know that when election into local government is conducted in Nigeria, the opposition party cannot get even a single councillor but I think in the case of the state (Kaduna), the opposition even won some seats.
“I think the PDP is not fair to the governor and our government because we are able to conduct the freest election in the history of not only Kaduna State, but Nigeria; because this is electronic voting that one cannot even manipulate; you cannot rig the election,” he said.
