Action Democratic Party (ADP) has demanded that henceforth the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should take over the conduct of Local Government election, alleging “electoral fraud by the state governors.”
The party also faulted the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Governor Abdulfatai Ahmed and Minister of Information Lai Mohammed among other APC leaders for their failure to prevail over their supporters.
Addressing newsmen Tuesday in Abuja, National Chairman of ADP Yabaji Sani, said his party actually won one of the local government but was robbed by the ruling party in the state.
According to him, “INEC should take over because it has shown that we have learnt nothing. The change APC promised is nothing and this is a shame that the state governors who are custodian of the law can not guarantee peaceful election. So, INEC should take over.
Though we did not have any physical evidence against the likes of Senate President, the governor and the Minister of Information but they have moral duties to ensure that we did not experience such open braising such as buying vote and killing we experienced in Kwara state on Saturday.
“We have come to alert Nigerians that our chairmanship mandate in Edu Local Government Area of Kwara State has been stolen by APC Government with the blood of three young men on their hands. We want to reclaim our mandate, we want those who killed the young men to be brought to justice and our Chairmanship Candidate in the election, Muhammad Abubakar Muhammad be declared winner.
“We are sad, very sad that APC, a Party that came into being as a result of what it described as decadence and moral deficiency in our polity, promising a change for the better has remained champions in corrupt practices, killings and has not only been found wanting in financial integrity at some high quarters, but has also displayed worrisome recklessness in pursuit of political tentacles and ambitions it has also not shown any remorse for its protectionism ideology for their own with soled fingers.”
