The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Sunday accused the Kano State Police Commissioner, Mohammed Wakili, of assisting the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to rig the governorship election in Kano state.
APC spokesman Lanre Issa-Onilu said in a statement that the Police Commissioner withdrew Kano state commissioners orderlies.
“It is on record how the Kano State Police Commissioner actively assisted the opposition PDP to rig inside Kano city with the deployment of police security for Rabiu Kwankwaso loyalists while state commissioners’ orderlies were withdrawn,” he said.
“The APC’s visible achievements in Kano state under Governor Abdullahi Ganduje are enough to give the party an emphatic victory in the rerun election.
“Again, the rerun will be mostly in APC-controlled rural areas and Nasarawa local government area where our Deputy Governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna is from.
“Undoubtedly, Kano state remains an APC stronghold and remains in our firm control,” Mr Issa-Onilu added.
