APC does not have monopoly of violence — Yero

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.

    Careless statement from the governor of crisis-proned state!

    • Johnson

      U never hear Amaechi encouraging Army to rebel against their leadership…shame on all of you who lies and deceive just for vote. APC have been making government ungovernable by stimulating bombing and crisis here and there. The good governor is saying the obvious. Is like you APC guys want war, the governor is only saying they cannot intimidate him, he is ready to fight…If USA is a muslim country, the world would have been destroyed by these religious zealots

  • dumbo

    You are only expressing your fear of loosing the election. A note of warning to you accidental Gov. Is don’t attempt to rig the elections.

  • abc

    There is no alternative for transforming your pockets and your family.

  • Ibraheem Aruna

    Governor Yero make efforts to stick to issues. Let people know what you have accomplished, what you are doing and what you intend to accomplish so that we can compare notes. Do not let your frustration cause you to heat up the polity. Please make efforts to show your track record so we can determine who we want. You insult everybody including yourself when you assert that we as citizens do not have an alternative to your governance.

    • Otile

      Ibraheem, have I not told you to change your last name? Aruna/arna is Islamic word for infidel. Don’t expose yourself to Islamic assault. I know you are a good Moslem but a fanatic may mistake you for a Christian or outright infidel and commit kamikaze assault on you.

      Be careful.

      • Johnson

        Be careful over what? The blood of the innocents you fanatical Muslims are shedding in pursuit of seven (7) virgins in hell will hunt you all forever. Your Master is not Mohammed but Satan. Mohamed never encourage you to kill Christians and Innocent. God will punish all of you blood suckers in the pit of hell. Nigeria will solve this problem of Terror by these godless criminals and blood suckers masquerading a religious Zealots.

  • endingNaija

    Shut Up yero or what is your name. PDP started the violence in Rivers state and Akure against APC and Goodluck Jonathan DID NOT TALK.

    • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

      Yes my brother. It seems to me that it is only when PDP is touched that our so called leaders come out to complain.

  • UYI111

    If anyone thinks he is bluffen play with fire and get burn

  • Rose Grants

    Baby even your boss Gay Vice-President Namadi Sambo is not bold enough to threat Buhari’s and APC supporters in northern Nigeria in particular and in Nigeria generally. Finally, let me join an illiterate First Lady Mrs Patience Faka Jonathan to say there’s God woo to this corrupt and incompetent governor and his clueless bosses GEJ and Sambo.

      Is this the real @Rose Grants?

      Wonders will never end.

      Anyway, welcome Sis, but easy on the ‘ebu’ sha o!
