From Francis Nansak,Lafia
Mr. Jacob Ajegana- Kudu, an All Progressive Congress (APC) aspirant for the Nasarawa State House of Assembly has rejected the result of the just concluded primaries election of his constituency.
Ajegana-Kudu, who is seeking the ticket to represent to Nassarawa Eggon East Constituency at the State Assembly, made his position known on Thursday during a press conference in Akun Development Area of the State.
He alleged that the whole process was compromised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Returning Officer, who he alleged refused to show/give the delegates list to the aspirants to see.
Ajegana-Kudu also alleged that the delegates list was doctored (tempered) with in the six electoral wards of the constituency, adding that delegates were intimidated and harassed by hired thugs at the venue of the election.
“I hereby reject the result of the election conducted at Nassarawa Eggon Guest House. The election, which produced Hon Mohammed Aggah Muluku as the winner of the election was marred by a lot of irregularities.
“When asked about the delegates list, he said it was a directive from above and the so-called delegates list was hand written and we wonder why the list was doctored and hand written.
He added that “Failure to nullify the election may lead to APC losing the 2019 election in the constituency because the election was compromised and it is against the wishes of the majority of the people of the constituency.”
