    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kaduna State Chapter has alleged that Governor Nasir el-Rufai of the All Progressives Congress in his bid to winning a second term has adopted ten ways.
    This was expressed in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Alberah Catoh, made available on Monday March 4, 2019.
    “Similarly it has come to our notice of the seeming machinations, desperation and the handy work of the El-Rufai administration to cow the opposition and frustrate a free , fair and transparent elections in his desperation to emerge  governor for a second term. The government has perfected its plans to amongst others; “(1) Invite President Muhammad Buhari on Thursday to come and mobilize the voters for him since he lacks the clout amongst the people. “(2) Mobilize and make maximum use of some Islamic preachers for sensitization. “(3) Reach out to the leadership of the Igbo’s the Eze Ndigbo and the Ohaneze Ndigbo to discourage them from turning out enmasse on  election day. “(4)The APC plan the use of thugs known as (Kato da Gora) who will go from shop to shop to threaten and intimidate the Igbo’s from Thursday to Saturday against voting out the APC. “(5) Suppressing of votes and blockade of PDP strongholds. “(6) Militarizing the Southern Kaduna axis on election day to deliberately disenfranchise the voters because of its large PDP following . “(7) He has Encouraged the Ad-hoc Staff to stuff ballots and cancel units for over voting in PDP strongholds. “(8) He has also Encouraged the non-usage of card Readers in the PDP strongholds so that votes cast will not count. “(9) Vote buying through buying of PDP Agents, loyalists and officials to engage in antiparty activities.
    ” (10)The APC has equally made arrangements to massively buy votes, directly from voters on elections day, and are deploying huge resources for that purpose. 
    “We call on our teeming supporters to be vigilant and ensure that all loopholes are plugged for our eventual triumph.
