Political adviser to Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Alhaji Uba Sani, on Sunday boasted that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) no longer exists in the state.
He said the ruling APC party had driven the final nail into the coffin of the opposition party in the northwestern state, saying “PDP is dead and buried.”Sani, a former aide to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, also said the people of Kaduna State would massively vote for el-Rufai in the 2019 General Elections, based on his track record and performance.
The governor’s aide, who was reacting to allegations by the PDP that he masterminded the rigging of the just concluded local government election in favour of the ruling APC in the state, said the PDP couldn’t have won a single seat if the election was not free and fair.
According to him, the ruling party is even magnanimous to have allowed the opposition party win the four local government councils declared so far by the state electoral body. Sani, who spoke with newsmen on Sunday after a successful state congress of the party, said if the APC government was out to rig the election, the state would have adopted manual voting and manipulate the process the way other states do across the country. He said, “Some of us are really disappointed with some of the utterances of the PDP with regards to the outcome of the Local Council election in the state.
