The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) "not to mistake the rigging in Ekiti" as acceptance by Nigerians.

The party, in a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that it would resist rigging of the 2019 general polls‎ with absolute force having known the antics of the APC.

"The PDP noted the unsavoury statements by the Presidency, celebrating the subjugation of Ekiti people as a stamp for President Buhari, wherein it further boasted of a triumph for the President in the 2019 general election.

"If, for President Buhari and the APC, the subjugation of the people, as witnessed in Ekiti, amounts to an election, then the nation is headed to a serious crisis, as such will be resisted with all legitimate force available within our laws in the defence of our nation’s democracy.

"The APC and INEC must note that what happened in Ekiti, as single state, cannot be pulled through in a general election, especially where the people have made up their minds to seek a new president.

"Nigeria is too big and too complex to be subjugated by a single individual or group of individuals, as any attempt to do so will definitely consume the conspirators.

"Moreover, while we are still pursuing the recovery of our stolen mandate in Ekiti, we state in very strong terms that this will be the last time the PDP will, under any circumstance whatsoever, allow itself to be manipulated out at the polls at any level," the opposition party said.
