CPC to challenge LG polls in Adamawa

04 December 2012, 16:05

Adamawa - Yola – Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Adamawa on Tuesday vowed to challenge councillorship results in Digil Ward of Mubi North Local Government at the Tribunal.

The Chairman of the party, Ibrahim Waziri, said this in Yola when he visited the Adamawa Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC) to protest the results.

He said that the party’s candidate,  Yahaya Dalailu was announced the winner of the election at the ward last Saturday and was even given a certificate of return at the local government office of the commission only for the commission headquarters in Yola on Monday to announce another candidate as the winner.

Waziri said the claim by ADSIEC that the CPC candidate had been disqualified could not “hold water” as the candidate was screened and given certificate of clearance by the ADSIEC screening committee.

“We also observe similar injustice in Lamurde Local Government where our councillorship candidate in Dubwangu Ward, Pastor Moses Ngandunbo, won the election but was denied victory,” Waziri said.

When reporters contacted the Chief Information Officer of ADSIEC, Mr Biryani Wilson on the development, he said the CPC candidate in Digil Ward had been disqualified.

According to him, the commission has communicated disqualification notice to CPC and its candidate concerned.

Similarly, Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has expressed dissatisfaction with the conduct of last Saturday election in the state describing it as a “farce”.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Yohanna Mathias in Yola.

He said that ACN was still compiling reports on the election for the next line of action to take.
