The majority leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, has threatened members of his constituency to either vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, on election day or be dealt with.

The lawmaker, who represents Doguwa/Tudun-Wada Federal Constituency, is seeking to return to the green chamber for a record seventh term.

In a video obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN on Monday, Mr Doguwa is seen issuing the threat at a political rally in Kano.

Mr Doguwa, who spoke in Hausa language, also used abusive words to threaten the electorate.

“To God who made me, on election day, you must vote for APC or we deal with you.

“I’m saying it again: on election day you either vote for APC, or we deal with you.

“Repeat after me, in Doguwa you either vote for APC or we deal with you,” he said amidst a chorus of applause from the audience.

Mr Doguwa’s comment was coming a few days after the Kano State APC chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, vowed that the APC would win the state either by hook or by crook.

Many stakeholders and opposition parties had called for his arrest, saying that it was a threat to a peaceful election.

Others described the chairman’s outburst as insidious and against the peace accord signed by all political parties and their candidates.
