Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State say they are fully ready to defend their votes during the state’s forthcoming governorship and the house of assembly elections.

The Atiku/Lado campaign director-deneral, Mustapha Inuwa, who disclosed this on Friday in Katsina, said they would do that in accordance with the electoral law.

He explained that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has provided that after casting their votes, the electorate can stay around until their votes are counted.

Mr Inuwa explained that during the presidential election, PDP won the state, so they are assuring their supporters that they will still win the next election.

He said PDP would not allow any party to manipulate the election results, adding that democracy has given the electorate the right to vote for the candidate they trust to be their leader.

He emphasised that their gubernatorial candidate, Yakubu Lado-Danmarke, did not withdraw from the race as speculated earlier.

Mr Inuwa further called on the people across the 34 local government areas of the state to come out en masse on March 18 to vote for the PDP.
