The party emphasised it’s commitment to embarking on an electioneering campaign without violence.

In a statement issued Friday by Dr Danladi Bako, Chairman, Publicity Committee of the APC state campaign council as well Member, APC Presidential Campaign Council Media Directorate, the party observed that despite intense provocation from the ruling People’s Democratic Party in the state, the APC would engage in violent free campaigns through out the period as agreed.

According to the statement , the state Leader of the party and former Governor of the State, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wammako had on Thursday spoke to reporters after the campaign council meeting that he abhor’s and vehemently reject any kind of insinuation or allegations to the effect that the All Progressives Congress as a party was responsible for the increased repeated violent clashes and counter-clashes during political campaigns in the last one month within the state.

Wamakko’s remarks came shortly after a caucus meeting held on the outcome of a briefing by the heads of security agencies with political parties in the state attended by State All Progressives Congress Chairman, Alhaji Isa Sadiq Achida .

It will be recalled that violent clashes have become a regular occurrence within the state recently to the extent that Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar only a few days ago also called on politicians to carry out their campaigns in a peaceful and violent-free environment.
