Some Governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have rejected the results of the Primary Election of the party held on Friday in the state.
Among the aspirants are Senator Smart Adeyemi, former Minister of State Labour and Productivity, Professor Stephen Ocheni, son of late ex-Governor Abubakar Audu, Shuiabu, and a member of the National Working Committee of the APC, Murtala Yakubu Ajaka.
Speaking on behalf of the aggrieved aspirants at a press conference in Abuja on Saturday, Senator Adeyemi claimed that no election took place to have warranted the declaration of Ahmed Usman Ododo as the Governorship candidate of the APC for the state.
He called on the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President-elect Senator Kashim Shettima, National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, not to allow the results of the primary election to stand.
He explained that there was no election in the state saying the result was written in collaboration with Secretary of APC Electoral Panel
He added that it will be difficult for the party to win the Governorship election in the state if the issue of electoral malpractice is not resolved.
