My advice to those riders is that they must rescind their decision because when they come and they create any mayhem, they will meet us squarely.

We are prepared for them; anybody who will put any impediment in the way of the referendum will not have it easy,” he added.

He went ahead to admonish everyone to abide by the rules and not do anything untoward to interrupt the process.

The referendum will take place in 47 districts in six regions across the country.
