The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is asking the International Community to impose a travel ban on the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai for his comments against peaceful elections in the country.
Governor El-Rufai was reported saying that members of the global democratic institutions that are not working for a peaceful election in Nigeria will return to their countries in body bags.
Following his comment, the PDP in a statement through its Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, threatened to pull out of the peace accord which was signed earlier in the week.
He said, “Nigerians are still in a shock over comments by the Governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, who declared on national television that members of the global democratic institutions that are not working for a peaceful election in Nigeria will return to their countries in body bags. What a threat?
“We call on the international community to immediately impose a travel ban on El-Rufai for this inciting comment against peaceful elections in our country”.
