“The PDP notes that Kogi State and particularly Kogi West, remains its home and the people are not ready to stomach the kind of impunity exhibited by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 16 polls.
“Our party therefore charges the people of Kogi state to come prepared to vote, protect their votes and ensure that they stamp their will on the ballot despite the odds.
“The PDP cautions security agents as well as officiaL’s of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to pander to repressive forcers, who seek to subvert the will of the people, as such is capable of attracting dire consequences.
“The party directs its members to stay united under their leaders in the area, as they would continue to be updated of vital information ahead of the election.
“The PDP is mourning our compatriots slain by the APC on November 16 and restates that their death will never be in vain.”
