The Director General of the Bello/Onoja Campaign Organisation, Senator Smart Adeyemi, has cried out that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is neither campaigning nor ready for the November 16 poll.
He said that the PDP was planning havoc on election day.
Adeyemi said there is no evidence that the PDP is ready for a free and fair poll, hence its passive electioneering.
The former two-term senator, who will be facing Senator Dino Melaye at the Appeal Court on November 16 for a rerun, on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), spoke yesterday in Lokoja shortly after a meeting with officials from the British High Commission, who were in the state to assess the level of preparedness for the election.
He expressed satisfaction about the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the elections on the same day.
He, however, expressed concern over the inactivity by the opposition parties, particularly the PDP, who he said was not campaigning or engaging the APC ahead of the election.
“The silence can either mean that they are planning mayhem, or that they don’t have anything to tell the people.
“The time I spent practising journalism; rising to become a two-term president of our union the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) have toughened me up and prepared me for the challenges of facing this senatorial rerun, as well as heading the campaign committee of Governor Yahaya Bello.
“As a journalist with many years of experience behind me and being a two-term president of the NUJ, I am well equipped to face the challenges.”
