The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kaduna State raised alarm over suspicion of a wave of sudden attacks in the Southern part of the state ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.

In a statement by Hon. Felix Hassan Hyat, Kaduna State PDP chairman said the party is worried the attack is coming a few days before the election in the part of the state that is the stronghold of the PDP.

The statement noted that the party is worried because the attackers may be playing out a script designed to scare, displace, and ultimately suppress the votes of the people of Southern Kaduna.

Saraki's Anointed Candidate Dumps PDP For APC

Abdulwahab Issa, the anointed candidate of former Senate President Bukola Saraki for Ilorin East/Ilorin South Federal Constituency during the February 25, 2023 election, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Mr Abdulwahab, who previously held several political positions, including spending two terms as chairman of a local government council and member of the Federal House of Representatives (2007-2011) as a political godson of Saraki, lost the opportunity to represent his constituency again in the National Assembly to Yinka Aluko, former Special Adviser to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on special duties during the February election.

Mr Abdulwahab therefore broke his long-standing relationship with Saraki by resigning his PDP membership just three weeks before the election to declare his support for the state governor's reelection ahead of Saturday's election.
