Professor Itse Sagay, the head of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), has criticized Senator Aishatu Dahiru (Binani), the APC candidate for governor in the just-completed election in Adamawa State.
Recall that Binani was declared the “winner” of the election despite the fact that the results of the supplemental poll were still being tallied by the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Hudu Yunusa Ari.
Despite the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) rejecting the outcome, Senator Binani gave a “acceptance speech.”
Speaking to New Telegraph, Sagay charged desperation on the part of the APC candidate for governor.
He claimed that Binani’s actions during the contentious election posed a severe threat to the democracy of the country.
According to him, the guber candidate, alongside others indicted in the “embarrassing” and “shameful” outing, should be investigated and prosecuted.
Sagay said: “It was a shameful spectacle. Very depressing; shameful! A major attack on our democracy, embarrassing that a Senator would be involved in that.
“She is so desperate for power that she is ready to condone vicious breach of our Constitution, and set us back in our democracy.
“It’s a huge disgrace, which spits on the face of this country with shame, that we could have a thing like that in Nigeria.
“It’s a huge shrink, and if people like that are many, if they multiply themselves into a few more, they can overthrow our democracy.”
Asked to make recommendations, Sagay said: “So, it should be looked at with the most rigorous glass…that is possible, to pick up every bit of thing that went wrong.
“And every aspect of those who participated in it, the police should go after them, and prosecute all of them, because it’s most embarrassing, very shameful.
“And they could have known that there is no way they could have gotten away with it. So, it was madness. But it’s embarrassing madness of this country.”
