Nasarawa Special Adviser Debunks Maku’s Statement That Command Centre Was A Centre For Election Rigging
The Special Adviser to governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura on Command Centre, Honorable Hamza Elayo has refute the statement made by the National Secretary of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Labaran Maku that Command Centre is the main hub where 2015 election was rigged.
The Special Adviser on Command Centre maintained that no rigging took place in government House Lafia.
He described the position of the National Secretary as fictitious meant to ridicule incumbent administration in the state.
Hamza Elayo opined that the revelation of the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance that the governor hired expatriate to rigged 2015 general election as untrue.
“I don’t want to join issues with Labaran Maku based on my relationship with him”.
Elayo stated this while reacting over the statement of the erstwhile minister of Information accusing the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress for manipulating the 2015 elections at government House Lafia.
“Is not true that we rigged election even with the use of card reader”.
He explained that election malpractice like ballot paper stuffing and over voting did not see the light of the day.
“Card reader is a solution to tackle cross over from one polling unit to the other, and where and how did rigging took place? He asked.
Maku during a briefing with Journalists also blamed the court for Judicial Summersault by upholding the victory of APC.
He affirmed further that the APC mandate was a stolen mandate of APGA.
The gubernatorial candidate of APGA said his party has uncovered plans by the ruling party in the state to rig 2019 election in their favour.
He called on eligible voters to come out end mass by voting massively for the All Progressives Grand Alliance, as he also urged voters not only to turn out but also to defend their votes.
It would be recalled that Maku recently accused the APC of conniving with some expatriate to rigged 2015 at the Command Centre in the seat of power.
‘I respect Maku but the way is instigating people against our government is uncalled for”
