Revealed: How Zamfara PDP members were flogged for not supporting Buhari in 2015

www.odogwublog.com reports that the immediate - past Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has revealed that members of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) in Zamfara State were flogged for not voting for President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress ( APC) in 2015.

Lamido who made the revelation during a visit to Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State yesterday in Umuahia, said that as soon as Buhari was announced the winner of the 2015 presidential poll, members of APC in Zamfara State started moving from house to house to drag out PDP members and flog them.

The former Governor who accused APC of using intimidation to muzzle up the opposition  said Nigeria's democracy " is under threat" by APC's dictatorial  tendencies.

He said Nigerians " are now too afraid to express their views " for fear of persecution by the ruling national party.

Lamido decried the level of witch- hunting and persecution against members of the opposition by the APC, a development he warned posed serious threat to Nigeria's democracy if unchecked.

He urged Nigerians to mobilise and vote out APC in 2019 and end its oppressive rule and maladministration.

Lamido noted with regret that " more than ever, Nigeria is currently divided"  along ethnic and religious lines under the watch of APC, which he said " is ill- prepared to govern".

The former Governor said PDP had learnt its mistakes which led to its misfortunes in 2015, and " is now poised to offer a better choice to Nigeria come 2019".
