In a news conference organized by a coalition of some political parties in Gusau Zamfara,on Wednesday,the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Zamfara, Alhaji Sani Shinkafi, confirmed that he has ejected all displaced persons taking shelter in his houses in Shinkafi for voting the APC in Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.
In his statement, the governorship aspirant said,
“I have asked all the IDPs residing in my Shinkafi houses to immediately pack out because they are not serious in life.
These are people who had to leave their villages due to insecurity caused by a government that could not provide such basic necessity to them, yet they went and sold their votes at the last elections trying to bring back the same gang,” he claimed.
According to him, in spite of his earlier advise to the displaced persons “to vote out those who failed them in the past years”, they still voted Buhari.
He claimed that the Internally Displaced Persons allowed themselves to be bought over during the election by “the people who failed them.”
Shinkafi further said the coalition has no confidence in the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) and all security chiefs in the state to handle the March 9, governorship and state assembly elections.
The coalition is comprised of the PDP, APGA, ACCORD, NRM, APP, ADC, NPP, DPP and YPP.
