APC Reveals How They Will Defeat Governors Tambuwal, Fintiri, Abubakar
By Ifreke Inyang
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has said the party will reclaim its stolen mandate in states, where the 2019 elections were conducted in flagrant disregard to electoral values.
Nabena said the rerun elections in Bauchi, Sokoto and Adamawa states which threw up PDP candidates as winners, were marred with massive rigging, violence and incidences of vote buying.
Bala Mohammed, Ahmadu Fintiri and Aminu Tambuwal were declared winners in Bauchi, Adamawa and Sokoto respectively.
Nabena, speaking with newsmen in Abuja, argued that the rerun elections were not conducted in line with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s rules and regulations.
He said: “Following a review of the governorship re-run election in Bauchi, Sokoto and Adamawa states, it is evident that massive rigging, thuggery and vote-buying characterised the exercise.
“It should be noted that while the APC has over two third of the members of the State House of Assembly in Bauchi and a clear majority in Sokoto state from the governorship elections, the re-run was rigged and was conducted without regards to laid down rules and regulations of INEC.
“To this end, the outcome of these reruns will be challenged at the election tribunals to reclaim our mandates in those states.”
