The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba state has accused former minister of Defence, Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma of bribing Independent National Electoral Commission not to declare Aishatu Jummai-Alhassan, the governorship candidate of APC winner of the guber polls in the state.
It would be recalled that a source had earlier told PM News on 12 April that the Peoples Democratic Party was delaying results from Southern Taraba in a bid to rig the election. As a reult of the delay, INEC said the election was inconclusive and the polls was rescheduled to hold on 18 April.
With the official results yet to be released, the youth leader of Alhassan’s campaign, Bala Abubakar Maina has claimed that INEC officials in the state has collected Two billion naira to tweak the results in favour of Peoples Democracy Party, PDP.
Bala is however optimistic that the rigging arrangement will fail because they already have permutations that Alhassan is the winner of April 11 elections.
“I am assuring you that with their TY Danjuma and the bribe money, Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan, Maman Taraba insha Allah will certainly be the next governor of the state,” Bala said.
Reacting in a similar vein, the secretary of Arch. Darius Yakubu Campaign Organisation, Nelson Lens accused APC of been indifferent to accept the fact that Taraba is a PDP state, which will remain a PDP state.
“TY is too big for this allegation, with our candidate who is already a marketable and sellable candidate, chief Darius did his homework very well; he has been nice to the people of Taraba even before his venturing into politics,” Nelson said.
