The former Minister of Information and governorship candidate of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) for the April 11 elections, Mr. Labran Maku, has recounted how the witnesses pencilled down by Governor Tanko Al-Makura and his party, All Progressive Congress (APC) turned against them at the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Lafia.
Maku said at a press briefing on Thursday in Abuja that Governor Al-Makura, APC and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) could not prove their case at the tribunal when to their shock and disappointment, their witnesses either testified against them or failed to turn up.
He commended the actions of the witnesses, whom he claimed were compelled by the fear of God not sell their conscience despite enormous monetary inducement.
He said: The rural people in Nigeria still have conscience even with money as they are not prepared to lie on oath. It shows that Nigerians could be truthful and has conscience and that testimony by his own witnesses to tell the truth in spite of monetary persuasion is the victory I hold dear. I am not going to pre-empt the outcome of the tribunal but I trust the Judges who are of good conscience to do justice.
