PDP retaliates on presidential, National Assembly elections

The main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the elections held in many parts of the country.
Millions of Nigerians turned out in various polling units across the country to cast their votes in the presidential and National Assembly elections.
While the elections were peaceful in many parts of the country, there were cases of violence in many states including Rivers, Bayelsa, Lagos and Oyo states.
Several people were also disenfranchised from voting as their names were either not in the voters’ register or due to violence.
In its statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP blamed Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, for the violence.

APC Are Killing Nigerians, Burning Ballot Boxes –PDP…Salutes Nigerians for Their Resilience
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alerts all Nigerians and the international community to note how the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been killing innocent Nigerians, snatching and burning ballot boxes in today’s presidential election.
The party, however, says that nothing can break the will of the people in their determination to stand till the end, in voting out the incompetent, corrupt and oppressive APC administration.
The unleashing of violence is the major part of the script by the APC to intimidate Nigerians and disrupt the election, in their bid to enforce the now failed President Buhari’s self-succession plot.
President Buhari and the APC leadership must know that they are directly responsible for the killings in Rivers State, the violent snatching of ballot box and burning of electoral materials in Lagos and various other states where compromised security agents were used to directly interfere in the electoral process.
In Lagos State, the world watched in amazement as security agents aided APC thugs to invade polling centres, disrupt electoral process, manhandle voters, destroy and burnt electoral materials, including ballot papers and boxes.
In Rivers state, voters were shot and killed by agents of the APC in their desperation to manipulate the elections.
