This was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Olagbondiyan assured that the governor will do well for the success of the PDP despite the harassments.

The Publicity Secretary, without giving the harassed governors names, claimed that the anti-graft agencies were blackmailin them

He said, “The All Progressives Congress is using anti-graft agencies to blackmail some of the governors. Our governors, in the last three and a half years, have suffered untold harassments in the hands of the APC and its government.

“They have been harassed and intimidated, but I want you to know that their will power is very strong and as such, they cannot be intimidated into submission. The governors are determined to support the party and they will continue to do that.”

Following the refusal of the President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the amended 2018 Electoral Act, the PDP is mounting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission to grant access to International and local observers to situation room during the elections.

The opposition condemned the planned to create additional poling units to accommodate the Internally Displaced Persons, arguing that such move is a tactic to rig the election.

“We are saying that since President Buhari has refused to sign the amended 2018 Electoral Act where transmission of result was included, let observers participate in the process. We have not seen anything that is bad in that and we would insist on it,” he said
