APC National Chairman, Ganduje’s Visit To Bayelsa Confirms Plan To Dollarise Saturday’s Governorship Election – PDP



The Bayelsa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the visit of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, to the state less than 24 hours prior to Saturday’s governorship poll.

In a statement on Friday, the state PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr. Ebiye Ogoli, said the party was at a loss and shocked that Ganduje planned to visit the state when the INEC-stipulated period for campaigns by political parties elapsed midnight of Thursday, November 9, 2023.

PDP also noted that the APC National Chairman was not an international or local observer accredited for Saturday’s election neither was he coming to cast his ballot in Bayelsa being a registered voter in faraway Kano State.

According to the statement, Ganduje’s presence in Bayelsa would only confirm the allegation that the APC had concluded plans to dollarise the election, and compromise the electorate and the electoral umpire.

“Our Party restates our belief that Nigeria deserves better and is in dire need of responsible leaders and statesmen that will move the country on the path of true democracy, peace, progress and accerelated development.­­”

“Our country needs leaders whose actions would stimulate good governance and bequeath moral decency to advance the course of democracy and not those whose stock-in-trade is to steal, kill and destroy during election,” Ogoli said.
