No!’ PDP says to Katsina result

On Tuesday, the PDP in Katsina through an address by its state chairman, Alhaji Salisu Majigiri, expressed its reservations and totally rejected the House of Representatives by-election result for the Mashi/Dutsi federal constituency held last Saturday. The Katsina PDP urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare the election inconclusive owing to what it described as malpractices that disenfranchised over 13,000 voters at the election.

The state party chairman, Alhaji Majigiri described the disenfrachisement of a large number of people who turned up for the excercise as threat to the Nigerian democracy and rape of justice and freedom of expression alleging that thugs and security operatives denied the people of their rights to vote.

He maintained that more than 13,000 could not cast their votes due to harassment at gunpoint by hired thugs.
