The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has called the attention of Nigerians to what he terms the “game plan of upturning the democratic wishes of the people of Adamawa State” in the governorship election in the State.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that Atiku, in a press release signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said that the initial decision of the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Adamawa State to declare the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Senator Aisha Binani, as the winner of the election, is a case study to the shambolic nature of the 2023 elections in general.
“Here in Adamawa, we are witnesses to a novel practice in election management where a Resident Electoral Commissioner announced the loser of an election as a winner.
“It is not in doubt that INEC has approached the Adamawa State election with a preset agenda of declaring the APC at all costs.
“It is, therefore, on this note that we wish to call the attention of the world to the scheme being perpetrated by INEC to compromise the electoral wishes of the people of Adamawa State,” Atiku said.
