APC in Adamawa on Tuesday rejected the Thursday March 28, 2019, new date fixed by INEC for the rerun for Adamawa governorship election.
Mr Ahmed Lawal, State Organising Secretary of the party dropped the hint while reacting to the new date fixed by the INEC for the governorship rerun election in the state.
Lawal told Journalists that the party was not consulted before fixing the new date for the rerun election.
The organising secretary alleged that rumors had filtered earlier that election would be held on Thursday and wondered why the rumored date would turn to be real.
“INEC failed to consult political parties involved in this election before going ahead to fix a new date for the rerun.
“We have smelt a rat due to the rumors in town earlier that rerun election would be conducted on Thursday and it turned out to be real.
” We are not afraid of rerun election but INEC should do the right things.
“How would you fix an election on work day? Are civil servants not going to participate in the election?
“We are going to forward our protest to INEC concerning the matter,’ Lawal queried.
it will be recalls that an Adamawa High Court sitting in Yola earlier vacated an order restraining INEC from conducting a rerun election in the state. INEC went ahead to fix Thursday March 28, 2019 for the governorship rerun.
