The Peoples Democratic Party in Katsina State have stated that they are fully ready to defend their votes during the forthcoming governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.
The PDP campaign state Director General, Dr. Mustapha Inuwa, disclosed this on Friday in Katsina, explaining that they would def3nd their votes with the full extent of the electoral law, citing that the Independent National Electoral Commission has provided that after casting their votes, the electorate can stay around until their votes are counted.
Inuwa expressed confidence that, since during the presidential election, PDP won the state, they are assured that they will still win in the March 18 election.
According to him, PDP will not allow any party to manipulate the election results.
He added that democracy has given the electorate the right to vote for the candidate they trust to be their leader, saying that this is what democracy is all about.
Vanguard reported that addressing speculations that their gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Yakubu Lado-Danmarke, had withdrawn from the race, Inuwa said the speculation is a sign of fear of defeat by the other parties, therefore, “we are telling the electorate that Lado-Danmarke will participate in the election.”
He further called on the people across the 34 Local Government Areas of the state to come out en masse on March 18 to vote for the PDP.
