APC Campaign Council Responds to SDP’s Allegations: Urges Accountability
SDP’s Allegations Questioned
The Kogi State All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Campaign Council has called on the public to scrutinize the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the event of any issues arising at the INEC office in Lokoja.
The campaign council expressed skepticism, asserting that the SDP’s claim of a planned attack on the INEC office was a fabricated narrative.
According to the council, this narrative serves as a smokescreen for the SDP’s true intention—demolishing the INEC office and then falsely attributing it to the APC.
Political Maneuvering and Accountability
In a statement signed by the director of Media and Publicity/Spokesperson for the Council, Kingsley Fanwo, the campaign council accuses the SDP of resorting to baseless claims and propaganda.
It contends that the SDP lacks evidence to support its allegations about the credibility of the Kogi State Governorship Poll.
The call for accountability is a strategic move to counter the SDP’s narrative, highlighting the council’s confidence in the legitimacy of the election.
Defending the Credibility of the Governorship Poll
Despite the SDP’s claims and alleged attempts to discredit the election, the APC campaign council emphasizes the credibility of the Kogi State Governorship Poll.
The director of Media and Publicity commends the people of Kogi for participating in a democratic process that, according to the council, has been acknowledged as the best in the state’s history.
The council expresses gratitude to the electorate for resisting ethnic biases and voting in unity.
Political Posturing and Legal Challenges
The APC campaign council dismisses the SDP’s legal challenge as inconsequential, emphasizing that the SDP failed to achieve its objectives during the election.
The council accuses the SDP of attempting to steal ballot boxes and sow disunity in the state, ultimately characterizing their participation in the election as an endless series of failures.
SDP’s Claim of Threats to INEC Office
Responding to the SDP’s statement alleging plans to burn down the INEC office in Kogi State, the APC campaign council dismisses these claims as baseless.
The SDP’s concerns about security are viewed as a diversionary tactic, attempting to shift attention away from their election performance.
Political Tensions and Security Concerns
The exchange between the APC campaign council and the SDP highlights the heightened political tensions in the aftermath of the election.
Security concerns and accusations of foul play add another layer to the complex post-electoral landscape in Kogi State.
The call for accountability becomes a crucial aspect of navigating these challenges and maintaining the integrity of the democratic process.
