Several dead in Buhari rally stampede in Nigeria


He added that the victory of President Buhari would rub on the other APC candidates in the state most especially the governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun, stating that the state was fully for the APC as it can not afford to concede to the opposition.

The president "has just been informed of the tragic deaths of several members of his All Progressives Congress (APC) party in a stampede during a presidential rally held in Port Harcourt in Rivers State", it said in a statement released late Tuesday.

The PDP said the president was a direct recipient of the "violence", he preached in Zamfara state only a few days ago.

The president, who made the appeal at the Federal Capital Territory's Presidential rally of the APC, said his administration would continue to ensure efficient utilization of the nation's scarce resources in the provision of infrastructural facilities across the country.

The PDP therefore urges Buhari and the APC to read the handwriting on the wall and get ready to accept his inevitable defeat so that Nigerians can have a breath of fresh air under the leadership of Atiku, whose campaign has continued to receive rousing reception. In security, the people of the northeast and the people of Abuja can know much better.

Three were men and the others were women, he added.

"On the economy, we are very lucky, but unfortunately, Nigeria has been underestimated".

President Buhari continued that "We had in agriculture in the last three years since we came".

"The previous government admitted without anybody asking them that they spent $16 billion on power, you know more than I do, where is the power, where is the money?"

"You know the condition of our roads, you know the condition of the railway, it was virtually killed and you know there was no power".

The figures are contrary to the report of the Police which had earlier indicated that four persons were killed while four others were injured.

"Yes, we are under a system now". "We were doing that militants were unleashed on us but we have now overcome those difficulties and now building infrastructure".
