Prince Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that if the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ekiti state is rigged, there will be crisis, Daily Trust reports.
He made the statement at the flag-off of the party’s local government election campaign in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state.
NAIJ.com gathers that Secondus made reference to the Kaduna local government elections, and said the Ekiti poll will be a litmus test.
In his words: "The forthcoming Ekiti state election is going to be a litmus test. We saw all that happened in Kaduna last Saturday. PDP won in all local government areas, but they over-turned the results.
"If you attempt to rig in Ekiti state, there will be crisis. Our security agencies and INEC should not be deceived into rigging elections."
Secondus added that with the help of Nigerians, the opposition party is united to reclaim power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari challenged the southwest caucus of the APC to bring back Ekiti into the fold of progressive states.
The president gave the charge during a dinner meeting with the caucus on Wednesday, May 16 in Abuja. He said that the people could achieve the target by ensuring electoral victory for the APC gubernatorial candidate, Kayode Fayemi, in the July 14 governorship election in the state.
