The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the Kogi State Governorship, Senator Dino Melaye, has expressed his worries about the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) planning to use violence to manipulate the upcoming elections on November 11th. Melaye shared his concerns during a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday.
Senator Melaye believes that the APC is plotting to unleash violence in Kogi State to force their desired outcome in the elections. This means that they might resort to using physical force or intimidation tactics to influence the results in their favor.
The PDP is concerned about the potential violation of the people’s right to choose their leaders freely and without fear. They want to ensure that the elections are conducted in a fair and peaceful manner, where every citizen can vote for their preferred candidate without any interference or coercion.
In a democratic society, it is crucial to have free and fair elections. This means that every citizen should have the opportunity to vote for their preferred candidate without any external pressure or violence. When violence is used to manipulate election outcomes, it undermines the principles of democracy and the will of the people.
By raising concerns about potential violence, the PDP is striving to prevent any harm to the people of Kogi State. They want to create a peaceful environment where everyone can live without fear and contribute to the development of their community. It is essential to address these concerns to maintain peace and stability in the state.
It is crucial for the PDP and other concerned citizens to speak up about potential threats to the democratic process. By raising awareness and demanding fair elections, they are working towards a future where every citizen’s voice is heard and respected. Let us hope that the upcoming elections in Kogi State will be conducted peacefully and in accordance with democratic principles.
