The statement made available by Phrank Shaibu, further said:
“I am familiar with how brazen and the complete lack of shame the All Progressives Congress, APC, can exhibit, but I was shocked to witness just how low they went last night by accusing the PDP of ‘recruiting armed thugs’ to do just that. Why would we want to do that when we are winning? “Furthermore I would like to say how proud I was of PDP supporters who conducted themselves so peacefully despite the significant provocations and threats of violence, removal and burning of ballot boxes and the likes.” The statement also thanked the security forces and election officials who in the main conducted their duties with exemplary professionalism.”
