APC Warns INEC, Insists Binani Is The Authentic Winner Of Adamawa Guber Polls

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Adamawa State declared Aisha Dahiru Binani as the winner of the state’s governorship election and vowed to thwart any efforts to revoke her victory.

Remember that following the supplemental polls on Saturday, the State’s REC, Hudu Yunusa Ari, pronounced Binani the victor. However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) rejected the declaration and eventually named Governor Ahmadu Fintiri the winner.

However, during a press conference held at its state headquarters in Yola, the APC bemoaned the false information that had been circulated in an effort to cast doubt on the process that had led to Binani’s victory in the hotly contested election.

Elder Samaila Tadawus, the party’s acting state chairman, declared that the party would use every legal strategy at its disposal to defend Binani’s mandate.


He pointed out that she is already the state’s next governor, clearing Binani of allegations that she tried to rig the election by offering financial incentives.

Even though the APC chairman insisted that the congressman remained the most well-liked candidate, he said that the state government had put pressure on two National Commissioners who were on observation duty to forcibly suspend the REC.

He denied claims that the REC improperly exercised its authority when it declared Binani the winner and insisted that the INEC employee was likewise held accountable.

The statement read: “We are concerned with the negative propaganda by the losers of this election. Some of them are: That the REC was bribed to make the declaration. This is a blatant lie. Our candidate was popular and did not require the manipulation of the process to win the election. Those who needed to manipulate the process are the ones who wanted the REC to be illegally suspended by two National Commissioners on an 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 for 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.

“We wish to also express sincere appreciation to the people of the state for shunning their call for violence. We in the APC are peaceful and peace loving. We will continue to promote peace in the state because we believe that nothing can be achieved without peace.

“Let me state clearly that the APC and all our members in Adamawa sSate are solidly behind our Governor-elect and wish to announce that we will protect our mandate by all legal means.


“Finally, we call on INEC to abide by the legal requirements that provide for only the Tribunal or the courts to upturn a valid and lawful declaration.

“The REC has absolute responsibility for state elections The returning officers for Governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections report to him. Arguing that the REC cannot do what he did in the circumstances he found himself is a losing argument.”
