Kogi denies attacking SDP witnesses at election tribunal

0 52

The Kogi State Government has denied the allegation by the Social Democratic Party that their witnesses in the ongoing election petition tribunal were attacked by agents of the state government.

SDP is challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress in the November 2023 governorship poll.

The state Commissioner for Information, Kingsley Fanwo, during a press conference on Saturday in Lokoja said that there was no evidence whatsoever to support the SDP’s claim that their witnesses were attacked at the tribunal.

Fanwo said, “Our attention has been drawn to a headless allegation by the Social Democratic Party to the effect that the state government allegedly attacked their witnesses in the ongoing tribunal.

“The allegation drifted into the abyss further by claiming that supporters of the thoroughly defeated candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the election, one Muritala Ajaka were attacked.

“We wouldn’t have bothered to respond to the barking of the SDP and its leadership as the state government is busy with governance, but it is important to set the record straight and address the minds of the public to the tradition of lies by the SDP.

“The Kogi State Government is unwavering in its stance on security and constitutionalism as the basic minimum in ensuring a peaceful and secured state.”
