The chairman of the media and publicity committee of the Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo campaign organization in the 2015 general elections, Dahiru Kera, has described the critics of the outcome of the recently concluded local government election in Gombe State as “bitter losers”.
The ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, won all elective seats in all the 11 local government areas in the February 25 council election in the state.
Mr Kera, a public relations expert, said the attitude of some politicians, especially within the All Progressive Congress, APC, in the state was merely the last kicks of a dying horse.
“APC is dying in Gombe. So the bitter losers are merely ranting to register their effete presence and lament their epic failure. It’s like the last kick of a dying horse,” Mr Kera said while addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday.
“That PDP won all the seats is neither new phenomenon nor impossible. With the unprecedented achievements of Governor Dankwambo, PDP will emerge winner even if the election would be conducted hundred times over.
“Last year, Adamawa State had local government elections and APC swept all the 18 local governments’ chairmanship seats in the state and there wasn’t outcry by the PDP, being the major opposition party in the state.
“Equally, elections were held in Yobe State recently under the APC’s leadership and they won all the seats in the state, yet PDP didn’t call for the cancellation of such results.”
Mr Kera therefore advised the opposition politicians to accept the outcome of the election in good faith as it was free, fair and transparent.
