INEC can’t upturn REC’s declaration – Adamawa APC Chair

The acting chairman of APC in Adamawa State, Elder Sama’ila Tadawus has said it was erroneous to say REC Hudu was bribed to announce Binani as the winner.

He said, “Our candidate was popular and did not require manipulating the process to win the election. Those who needed to manipulate the process were the ones who wanted the REC to be illegally suspended by two national commissioners on observer duty.

“We are also aware that the molestation of the national commissioners was done by agents of the state government. Hired thugs were used to molest one of them to the point that he was stripped half naked. Shamelessly, one of the agents of the state government was seen apologizing to the affected person and claiming that they molested him thinking he was the REC.

“We condemn the weaponization of violence by the opposition. This is seen by their so-called daily protest which is a harbinger of violence. We call on security agencies to as a matter of urgency stop these misguided agitators who are bent on throwing the state into chaos,” Tadawus said.
