Vote APC or we’ll deal mercilessly with you, Tinubu’s allies threaten Nigerians
A lawmaker of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Alhassan Ado Doguwa has threatened to mercilessly deal with any Nigerian who would not cast vote to the ruling party in 2023.
Doguwa made the assertion while campaigning in a viral retrieved and sighted clip by Scanned News on social media on Tuesday thus: “It is either you vote for APC or we deal with you mercilessly,”
Based on the viral clip, the lawmaker, also doubling as the majority leader in the House of Representatives, asserted the threat as hordes of his supporters chorused in support of him.
Until the time of compilation, we could not verify when and where the video was recorded.
Abdullahi Abbas, the Kano APC chairman, in a similar manner had earlier threatened that the APC will win the forthcoming elections by hook or crook.
In his words: “People are saying that I should stop saying the APC will capture Kano by hook or crook. I want to tell this gathering that the APC will capture Kano by hook or crook,” Mr. Abbas said.
Notably, Kano indexes among states with the highest number of registered voters. According to the voter register made public by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in October, Lagos, Kano, Kaduna, and Rivers States have the highest number of voters.
Lagos has 7,075,192 registered voters, followed by Kano with 5,927,565 registered voters, Kaduna with 4,345,469 registered voters, then Rivers with 3,532,990.
