Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has reacted to reports that an explosion rocked an APC rally in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.

At least three people were reportedly injured at the campaign rally on Thursday at the Rumuwoji playground in Port Harcourt.

In reaction to the event, Atiku via his twitter handle urged security personnel to make sure that those responsible for the heinous act, as well as their promoters, be brought to justice.

Atiku wrote, “there should be no place for violence and anti-democratic manifestations in this election.

“We’ve already committed to that in the peace pact we all signed up to.

“Elections are not a do-or-die affair but an opportunity to reinforce our belief in democracy through our leadership choices via adult suffrage.

“We had complained about the violence that had been visited on our party in some states because we did not want it to become a pattern if those engaged in anti-democratic activities were not brought to book.

“Our worst fears have now manifested with the explosion at the APC rally in Port Harcourt. It stands condemned.

“Elections and the choices we make should be about the BALLOT and not the BULLET.

“On behalf of my team, I stand in solidarity with the APC and the families of the injured. I wish the injured a quick recovery.

“Once again, I call on security agencies to ensure that those behind this dastardly act, including their promoters, are brought to justice to serve as a deterrent to copycats who may be emboldened to thread this same anti-democratic path. – AA.”
