Taraba Re-run: APC Accuses T Y Danjuma of Bribing INEC with N2b To Favor PDP
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Taraba state has alleged that the former minister of Defence, Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma induced INEC not to declare senator Aishatu Jummai Alhassan, the gubernatorial candidate of APC winner of the past guber polls in the state.
The Youth mobilisation leader of Aisha campaign, comrade Bala Abubakar Maina who spoke to our correspondent in the private house of Senator Aisha Alhassan in Jalingo said that INEC was alleged to collect whopping sum up to two Billion naira in the interest of People Democracy party, PDP, which is having a candidate many believe is the political anointed son of TY Danjuma.
Comrade Bala said no matter the evil arrangement of PDP to rig this election, it cannot work because they already have permutations that they are the winner of April 11th Polls.
The rerun election is still going to Show as all hands are on desk to see that the APC mandate in the state is not truncated by PDP as they are told that people like T Y Danjuma are the ones behind all the political problems in the state.
“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 who are in a mission to rescue Taraba, Mr Nelson Lens accused APC of been indifferent to accept a fact that Taraba is a PDP state, and undoubtedly is going to remain a PDP state should the rerun elections take place in the affected areas that made the election in the state to be declared inconclusive by INEC.
Nelson exonerated T Y Danjuma from having any affairs with the PDP in the state so much so that he can bribe INEC with 2 billion naira, describing him to be a father to everybody in Taraba and Nigeria as a country; his duty is to see that Nigeria is intact not only Taraba.
“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.
According to him APC people are the ones that collaborated with INEC and the REC not to declare PDP the winner of the guber polls, seeing the fact that PDP is already leading with over fifty thousand votes.
He also accused the returning officer of being an instrument working against PDP in favor of APC, after announcing to the whole world the winner of the guber election will be announced by 2pm that day only to cancel some results from Donga LGA which is a PDP stronghold and at the end of the day about six LGAs were affected.
“To my belief, if the whole results should be in favor of APC they would have collaborated and declared them the winner of the election,” he added.
