Benue state Governor Gabriel Suswam has said that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, will not rig the 2015 elections.
Suswam stated this in Makurdi shortly after the inauguration of the campaign team for the PDP governorship candidate, Terhemen Tarzoor, which is headed by Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher.
He said, “We are not going to rig this election, we are going to win all our elections 100 per cent.”
“Let nobody deceive you that APC will win election in Benue State and Nigeria, we will win our elections clean, square and clear.”
He condemned the campaign that people should vote for candidates rather than party, describing it as anti-party and should attract sanctions.
He said, “It is better for the worst person to win in your party than the best person to win in an opposition.”
The governor gave Christmas and New Year gifts to party faithful in the tune of N9m, 12 cows and 600 bags of rice.
However, the distribution of the items nearly led to a stampede as party members fought, forcing the police to use tear gas at the venue.
