Governor Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State has warned the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, against violence, warning of consequences.
Mr. Yero said this in Kaduna on Saturday at the inauguration of President Jonathan/Sambo state campaign committee in Kaduna.
He warned the APC to avoid violence or face the wrath of the law.
The governor said no one has monopoly of violence, and that the PDP will respond if APC goes violent before, during and after the forthcoming elections.
“Nobody should be scared of anybody because the way some members of the opposition have the power to fight, members of PDP also has the same power,” Mr. Yero said.
The governor advised PDP supporters them to maintain peace and order during the campaign both at state and federal levels, as doing so would encourage rancour-free elections in the country.
He emphasized that there is no alternative to the PDP’s transformation agenda which he said is evident in the nation’s economy, agriculture, power, education and human resources development.
Earlier on Saturday, Vice President Namadi Sambo was booed in Zaria at the 40th anniversary of the Emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris.
Mr. Sambo who arrived at the ceremony late, was booed by some angry youth while chanting “Ba Maso” meaning “we don’t want”.
It took the intervention of the security personnel to bring the situation to order.
