The Ebonyi state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged members of the party including supporters to resist any form of malpractice, rigging and sharp practices in the forthcoming general election.
State Chairman of the party, Onyekachi Nwebonyi, who made the call while briefing newsmen in in Abakaliki, equally urged them to resist any form of unwarranted arrest from security operatives in the state.
He said the people were determined to vote out the APC government, which he said anchored on rhetoric, deception and falsehood.
“All members and supporters of PDP should resist any form of malpractice, rigging and sharp practices during and after voting. I also urge the party faithful to resist any form of intimidation or unwarranted arrest by any group of people or security operatives before, during or after voting.
“Make sure your votes are protected and follow results up to collation centres. Your vote is your future. We must have to vote out the APC government, which is anchored on rhetoric, deception and falsehood.
“The time is now to exercise our franchise. We have been held to ransom by a cabal operating under cover to advance ulterior agenda. Nigeria under the present administration has witnessed rancorous divisions along religious and ethnic lines more than any other time in the history of the country. Nigeria has suffered much economic hardship.
“A vote for the PDP will get Nigeria working again, while a vote on the contrary will get Nigeria to the next level of economic recession, herdsmen attacks, insurgency and disrespect for the rule of law.
“There is no gain saying the fact that Governor David Umahi has transformed Ebonyi state. Today, Ebonyi state boasts of the best roads in Nigeria as Abakaliki is the most beautiful state capital in Nigeria and Ebonyi state is the most peaceful overall.”
