The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto state on Monday said it noted with dismay, the purported claim by Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko that they were trying to rig elections in the state.
“Our party views this latest spurious allegation as unfortunate and an insult on the good people of our dear state, who are not unaware of the dirty politics being promoted and sanctioned by the Senator,” a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of PDP, Abdullahi Hausawa said.
In the statement, PDP described the claim as sad and unbecoming of a former governor of the state to resort to such ridiculous tactics of scoring undeserved political points.
“The PDP in Sokoto State and nation at large, expects no preferential treatment from any agency but is rather, well prepared to win all elections fair and square,” it stated.
“Our party’s political posture has been known to be disciplined and law abiding, in spite of the provocative character of the APC,” the statement added.
The party said it was confident of emerging victorious in free and fair polls.
It, however, cautioned the Senator to desist from making unsubstantiated allegations and focus on cleaning its act to uphold politics of maturity and honour.
