A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu has said that any member of the Peoples Democratic party caught rigging in the 2019 Elections will be lynched.
The word ‘lynch’ according to the Oxford online dictionary means “to kill (someone) for an alleged offense without a legal trial, especially by hanging.”
Kalu made this comment while addressing journalists at his Igbere country home in Abia state shortly after hosting executive committee members of the party.
He said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC had done well in carrying out the ongoing continuous voters’ registration exercise. He said;
“This meeting was to reassess the ongoing voters’ registration exercise. We met with the party leaders in the 17 Local Government Areas to brief us on how the exercise is going.
We will take stock and report to the State executive committee of the party. We will meet again in two months for another review.We are working hard and building the party to be very strong to win election in 2019.
We are going to give to give PDP a run for their money in Abia. We will take over Abia.PDP rigging formula will end in 2019. If you rig you will be lynched. “You saw what happened in Anambra State, votes will count here.
All the result-writing formula of the PDP has ended in Abia State, it is dead on arrival. Votes will count this time. Anybody who tries to rig will be lynched because he is a criminal.”
