Elections: PDP denied venue for Abuja mega rally

Nigeria polls rally stampede claims lives of Buhari supporters

Gen. Jerry Useni, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Candidate in Plateau, says that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar's presidential candidature is a blessing to Nigeria.

"She specifically said I should pass the message that from here, we will integrate you into organisations that are relevant to your various state, local governments, wards and units and you will go out there to campaign from door-to-door taken full advantage of what you know of the government and performance of President Buhari", he said.

In a statement issued on Friday night in Abuja, the party maintained that it was denied the use of the Old Parade Ground, Garki, Abuja in spite of the fact that it had made payments to the authorities and obtained official approval to host its mega rally at the venue. "APC remains one party, we remain one nation and one family", the Governor said.

However, a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Saturday, PDP insisted that it will reschedule and still hold the presidential rally regardless of any further efforts to stop it.

Ahead of next weekend's presidential election, wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has officially received members of over 145 aggrieved Atiku Abubakar Support Groups into the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign organisations to brighten the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.

"We, therefore, need to restate that the more the Buhari Presidency attacks the people's candidate, the more his support base among Nigerians expands".

"When you add these factors to the number of Nigerians that have abandoned the ship of APC, including those who will work for the people's candidate, Atiku Abubakar, from within the Buhari Presidency and inside the APC, you will agree with me that we are coasting to victory and we shall get Nigeria working again".

He said the Igbos would lose in the political equation of the country if they failed to vote massively for the APC, stressing that Buhari would win. "Nigeria belongs to all of us and nobody can stop us from exercising our constitutionally guaranteed right of holding our rally in the FCT or any other part of our country for that matter".
