Taraba LG polls: No election, election in Taraba, election was only a ploy of caretaker committee, APC claims
the All Progressives Congress APC in Taraba State has described Saturday’s election as a sham and a mere charade, alleging that elections were not held in most locations across the State while gross irregularities were very apparent across the State
The state Chairman of the Party Alhaji Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi said that in most locations, thumb printing was done in homes of PDP stalwarts in may local government areas while people waited at polling units but did not see election officials or materials.
Hmmm thumb printing was done in homes of PDP stalwarts in may local government areas while people waited at polling units but did not see election officials or materials.
“It has become imperative for me to address you at this time. Ordinarily, local government elections is supposed to be going on across the state and all of us should be busy with that. Unfortunately, electoral materials are taken to homes of political stalwarts for thumb printing. In Ibi, the electoral officers are nowhere to be found since yesterday. I informed the security who said their responsibility is only to safeguard the election materials. I also informed the Chairman of SIEC who assured me that the right thing would be done and yet nothing is happening
“At the end of the day, the PDP and Taraba State Government has used the election process to legalise the appointment of Caretaker committees at the various local government areas. This is unfortunate and sad.”
