PDP condemns violence in APC ward congresses

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has condemned reported cases of violence and bloodletting which characterized last Saturday’s All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congresses across the country. The party made the condemnation in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday in Abuja.

It expressed worry that the nation’s electoral processes could still be affected by unnecessary resort to violence by contenders, even when there were available channels for resolution of disagreements. It, therefore, called on Nigerians, particularly political stakeholders, to combine efforts to make the country’s political and electioneering processes free of violence, especially as the 2019 general elections approached.
