Kaduna Denies Buhari Access to Rally Venue – APC

The APC party made it known that in preparation of their rally in Kaduna state, the Kaduna State government denied the party’s presidential candidate, Maj. Gen Muhammmadu Buhari (retd.), access to the Muritala Mohammed Square, Kaduna, for his North-West zonal rally ahead of the rescheduled March 28 and April 11 general elections.

The preparation for the rally, which is expected to hold today (Wednesday), had reached an advanced stage when the information was brought to the zonal office that the state had refused the party the permit to use the venue, PUNCH reports.

“The PDP is in a tense state already as they are simply afraid of the popularity strength of the APC in the state and indeed the northern part of the state,” a party official, who wants his name undisclosed, said....

The spokesman for Governor Mukhtar Yero, Malam Ahmed Mayaki neither picked calls to his mobile nor respond to a text message sent to his phone on the development.

Meanwhile, the APC in the state has accused the Yero-led administration of preparing the ground for crisis ahead of the elections in the state.

Spokesman of the APC Campaign Council in the state, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, at a media briefing said those championing intense dislike, disloyalty and estrangement in the state were those in government. He noted that the government was not interested in ensuring peace and that it had been paying lip service to the issue of peace in the state.

Aruwan said the Kaduna State government had engaged in promoting violence in the state. He said:
 “As a movement of the people, the APC is decisively committed to free, fair and credible elections, held in an atmosphere of peace. 
“The PDP government of Kaduna State is actively mounting religious and ethnic tension. Along with its affiliates and supporters, the PDP has been trying to whip up religious resentments against General Muhammadu Buhari and Mallam Nasir el-Rufai (the APC governorship candidate)”.
