The Ohere Political Vanguard has admonished the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi Central Senatorial District to stop Media trial and efforts at seeking for sympathy over their woeful loses at the just concluded Presidential, National and State Assembly Election held in the district.
The group also insisted that there is no mandate to reclaim by the PDP in an election that was squarely won, clean and clear by Engr. Abubakar Ohere of the APC.
This was contained in a statement signed by Taihiru Usman Maliki while reacting to a misleading report on behalf of the Senator Elect, Kogi Central Senatorial District, Engr. Abubakar Ohere, described the PDP Senatorial District Candidate as a bad looser who’s trade in stock over the years is to take to the social media to calculate her electoral victory after her outright rejection at the polls.
“We make bold to state that for the first time in history of election in Kogi Central, going by the assessment of International and Local observers, the election was adjudged as free, fair, credible, with not a single violence recorded.
“We therefore describe the misleading information sponsored in section of online media aimed at weeping up sentiments that Residents Throw Weight Behind Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, Confident of Retrieving Mandate”
The group described the PDP Senatorial Candidate as living in life of hallucination and urged her to wise up, come to terms with reality that election are over and the APC victory remains a reality and untouchable.
The Ohere Political Vanguard wonders why in the figment of the imagination of the PDP candidate she will be calculating figures on the air forgetting that INEC as a body and it’s activities are governed by the laws.
The group further described as laughable for the PDP Flagbearer to want to teach INEC on how to declare a winner, explained that each time the PDP Flagbearer loses in an election, it is always like day dream to her.
“Just like it happened at the National Assembly Election, thus making her resort to film making and drama acting on the social media.
“The Ohere Political Vanguard notes for the umpteenth time that it is a trade in stock of the PDP never to agree to defeat in any contest, described the present scenario by the PDP Senatorial as an act they are used to.
“The Ohere Political Vanguard is not surprised that the PDP is not tired of complaining in an already won contest, urged them to simply concede to defeat rather than attempt to overheat the polity for no just cause, better still head to court for justice as it claim in their news report.
“It is unfortunate that since the PDP attempt at militarizing the election in Kogi Central was not able to yield results, the candidate has resorted to manufacturing and manipulating figures on air for INEC to declare them winner outside an already collated result in an election freely won by the APC Senatorial Candidate.
“The attempt to claim victory on the air is to us an aberration and undemocratic. We wonder if it was that simple the way election are won on paper as postulated by the PDP candidate, there wouldn’t have been any need for contest in the first place as people would rather work towards the kind of PDP victory through mischief.
“The PDP candidate for now should have been tired of complaining in an already won contest and simply concede and to accept defeat or better still present evidence at the court rather than propaganda.
“Manufacturing and manipulating figures on the air for INEC to declare the PDP winner in a mandate freely given by the people of Kogi Central to the APC outside already collated figures is an aberration and Undemocratic, making us to wonder if that was actually the way election are won. Nobody would have contested election in the first place but rather work towards the kind of PDP victory through mischief.
“The PDP without fear or contradiction was a party that was roundly defeated in the February 25th National Assembly Election but has refused to accept defeat for the mere fact that extortion from the higher purse must be allowed to dry up, a character trait the PDP is known for.
“Apparently, the PDP is inflicted with Pain is not out of place having been outrightly rejected can be understood owing to the quantity of dollars invested in the Kogi Central election that was for them a do or die.
“We however advice Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan to come to terms with the reality that the people of Kogi Central have freely and willingly given their mandate to the APC.
“The outcome of the Kogi Central Senatorial District election is a choice made owing to capacity, competence and antecedents of Engr Abubakar Ohere, a quality that has over the years made him a household name.
“While the use of fictitious names in the misleading report by the Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Campaign Organization remains a hoax, holds no water, the people of Kogi Central since the election results have been declared in favour of the most acceptable candidate, have since moved on, expecting the much desired democracy dividends to start trickling in when Engr. Abubakar Ohere assumes representation” he stated
The group therefore called on the people of Kogi Central Senatorial District that their mandate is secured and would not be reclaimed outside democratic tenets, assuring them that the mandate would be affirmed, signed and sealed legally owing to the preponderance of evidence that the election was free fair and credible.
“If for any reason the wounds are refusing to heal, we urge the Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Campaign Organization to seek legal means of redress in the Tribunal, but they should be rest assured that the APC within the ambit of the law will do all that is desired in protecting and securing the mandate freely given by the people of Kogi Central for Engr Abubakar Ohere of the APC for the good and prosperity of the people” the group stated.
