APC Rejects Inec’s Decision On Bauchi Governorship Election by dre11(m): 9:14pm On Mar 16
By Balarabe Alkassim, Bauchi


The All Progressives Congress (APC) Bauchi State chapter has rejected the decision taken by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the governorship election results from Tafawa Balewa local government area.

The party, at a Press Conference in Bauchi on Saturday, stated that the action taken by the electoral body was null and void.

Addressing the Press Conference, the state chairman of the party, Alhaji Uba Ahmed Nana said the position taken by INEC contravened the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.

“Considering the letters and spirit of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (1999 as amended), and the INEC Guidelines for 2019 General Elections, INEC is not empowered to reverse any decision taken at the Collation Center by the Returning Officer appointed for that purpose.

“Such decisions can only be reversed by a Court of law, especially when INEC cannot Approbate and Reprobate,”the party stated.

The party also accused the Festus Okoye-led committee of denying it fair hearing as its agent were not invited during the hearing to ascertain the circumstances leading to the cancellation of the Tafawa Balewa local government election result.

“The composition of the committee is also questionable as the Committee chairman, Festus Okoye Esq, is a close ally of and ex-personal Solicitor of Hon. Yakubu Dogara of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“No justice can be done by the committee chairman who is interested in the whole issues and the instant circumstances.,” it said.

Can this man be made to know that the head of media of any organisation only releases the decision of his ogas at the top? Festus Okoye didn't take the decision; his job is to take direction from INEC chairman and put them in writing and then disseminate to media houses.

No matter the nonsense INEC in collusion with PDP do, APC will still have more States they are controlling, more senators, more house of rep than PDP.

When it's in favour of PDP, it's a thumbs up for INEC but when it's the opposite, INEC is accused as being an agent to APC. Foolish party.

They know that they lost.

PDP is coasting to victory in the last elections, especially in States canceled by EYE-NECK INEC.

Don't mind those criminals.

When you have mental patients like Fani Kayode, crude crooks like Fayose and thieves like Metuh in a party, what do you expect?

What are you saying?.. In this instance, Okoye is not acting in a capacity as INEC's spokesman but as a head of INEC Committee in the state's election.

As a southerner any of us still thinking that power will return to the south come 2023 is daydreaming. From the look of things the north is strategising on how to hold unto power beyond 2023. President bubu doesn't give a Bleep on what happens to APC governors and their reelection bid, just as he's shown during the electioneering campaign where many APC state chapters were engulfed by controversies. A good leader who'd like the party to survive after him would have waded in and save APC from collapsing in some states. But so long as the whole factions were rooting for his reelection, he openly enjoined the electorates to vote any candidate of their choice while voting him for presidency which in other words a campaign against the state chapter of APC, he allowed to saga to linger in fear of stepping the toes of some party bigwigs which could be injurious to his reelection bid which in turn cost some APC governors their reelections. He played alongside what ever tinubu has to say to make sure he didn't lose his support and the only notable achievement tinubu with his political sagacity could record was making sure he retrieve Kwara state from the firm grip of saraki. As it stands now PDP is likely to take Kano, Bauchi, Benue, Sokoto, Plataea, rivers and Adamawa which will place them at the driving seat come 2023 especially if they field a northern candidate, I foresee APC being a south western party when buhari finishes his tenure and before that, northern realignments would have made north a PDP region once again while tinubu will be left alone with his southwestern party (APC) to try his luck. we might be more educated and enlightened down south but when it comes to politics (shiaharaya ndi ugwu) give it to the north. Yorubas will be the biggest loser of this Buhari's reelection and tinubu will be cut into pieces.
