Edo: PDP’ll resist rigging —Senator Ordia

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), senator representing Edo Central Senatorial district,  Clifford Ordia, has warned against rigging by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forth coming Edo Stae governorship election.

Ordia told newsmen in Abuja,  on Wednesday, that PDP, was fully prepared to win the governorship election, adding that no amount of intimidation will distract its members.

The senator, who is the deputy chairman of the Senate Committee on Works, said the  nature  of APC-led government in the state in the last eight years, has given Edo people no choice but to choose a more credible candidate from PDP.

“In my senatorial district, APC has no chance. We have put everything in place to checkmate  the plan by APC to rig. We will resist it. We know that APC is desperate and they are doing everything to frustrate voters but it will not work.”

“He, however, called on Edo people to come out en mass and vote for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu,  adding  that no amount of intimidation would deter them from exercising their voting right.

He warned security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), not to make themselves willing tools in the hands of desperate politicians.
