The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has implored Kwara electorate to ignore threat to attack them during Saturday’s governorship and State Assembly elections.
The minister stated this on Thursday in Ilorin at the final rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to canvass vote for its Governorship candidate, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and other candidates.
Mohammed, who is APC leader in the state, accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of deliberately creating panic to prevent voters from coming out.
He further stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the security agencies to deploy their men to cover the elections and protect all voters from any form of intimidation and harassment.
“There has been a lot of panic being deliberately created by the opposition having seen the handwriting on the wall in the last elections. They want to intimidate people and prevent them from coming out to vote.
“Please do not be intimidated by anyone. Nobody can tell you not to come out to vote. Please come out en masse to vote for APC on Saturday.
“The President has given the directive to all security agents that anyone who dares to disrupt Saturday’s election action will have himself to blame.
“After voting ensure that you wait to protect your votes until counting and accompany them to the collation centers.
“We will get our total independence from our oppressors on Saturday,” he said.
Mohammed said that the last election was the part one of “O to Ge” (Enough is Enough) and part two is coming up on Saturday.
He said the people should use their votes to completely exit the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his lieutenants from Kwara politics.
The minister added that the people had been deceived for so long and they should use their votes on Saturday to get their final liberation.
