Fanwo said,  “The statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, accusing both the  APC and INEC of planning  to manipulate the November 16 poll has further confirmed our earlier position that the PDP is only interested in creating confusion ahead of the election.

“The brazen audacity of the opposition party to peddle falsehood has been further aggravated by their complete loss of grip on the people.”

He added, “The PDP should deal with the blood on their hands as their primary became bloody as a result of the desperation of some people to get the ticket at all costs.

“The APC is campaigning hard to win the election and we do not believe in manipulation which is a known tradition of the PDP.

“We also have no reason to doubt the credibility of the security agencies to act fairly in protecting the sanctity of the ballot boxes.”

He advised  the PDP to  concentrate on marketing their  candidate, Musa Wada, instead of making allegations.

The APC said, “Our strength is the governor  who has performed excellently to the admiration of the people. The people have confidence in him to continue to impact their lives positively.”
