Kwara Women Endorse AbdulRazaq For Re-election – APC Women Leader



A female APC leader in Kwara State, Hajia Hud Shekinat, has urged the populace to vote to keep Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in office for a second term. She claims that no administration since the state’s founding has given women more recognition than the incumbent.

Fidel Info reports that Hud stated that the governor provided more attention to the cause of women in the state during his first term at a news conference and prayer session for the reelection of Governor AbdulRazaq held by the AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq Progressive Platform on Sunday in Ilorin.

“AA made us proud as women in the state during his first term, he brought us to the limelight. We are not restricted to the kitchen like some people would say so we have no other option than to support his re-election so that the good works can continue.”

“No other candidate has his capacity and competence, so we are for Governor AbdulRazaq because of what he’s doing, particularly for women,” she said.

She added that women also “benefitted scholarship, road constructions, empowerment and several others. We benefited more than we experienced in the last 16 years.”

Also speaking at the programme, one of the chieftains of the APC in Kwara State, Alhaji Azeez Adebayo, said the administration of the governor was divinely ordained in the history of the creation of the state. He, therefore, called for his re-election in the Saturday, March 18, 2023 election.

Adebayo, the convener of AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq Progressive Platform, said, “The current administration of Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq was divinely ordained by God and that is why in the last four years, his achievements surpassed what the past administrations did in the last 16 years.

“The imprints of the genuine and people-oriented administration of governor AbdulRazaq is felt across the nooks and crannies of the State because he has compassion for the masses and is genuinely interested in moving the state forward.

“Therefore, whatever members of the opposition are saying now should be ignored because they have nothing to offer, they are enemies of Kwara state.

“Those who have been living in Kwara would know that the past governments primarily shared allocations to the state since its creation and did little or nothing to progress the state.”

The central coordinator of AAPP, Alhaji Ayuba Aduragba, in his address listed the monumental achievements of Governor AbdulRazaq in the last four years and called on all and sundry to vote for him in his re-election bid on Saturday.

“We are calling on all and sundry to vote for governor AbdulRazaq on Saturday so that the good work will continue and more developmental projects would be implemented for the benefit of the generality of the people,” he said.

Binani Applauds Decision To Declare Adamawa Gubernatorial Election Inconclusive



The All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa State, Aishatu Ahmed Dahiru, popularly known as Binani, has applauded the Independent National Election Commission for its decision to declare the gubernatorial election in the state as inconclusive.

Fidel Info reports that The 18th of March election was declared inconclusive on the 20th of March by the state collation officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Muhammadu Mele of the University of Maiduguri, due to the irregularities in the votes margin.

The incumbent Governor Ahmadu Fintiri and the candidate of the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 421,524, while Binani polled 390,275.

He said, “Elections were not held in 47 wards, affecting 69 polling units. So, this gives us a margin of 31,249. The total number of PVCs collected in places where elections were not held amounted to 37,016.”

Binani alleged that violence and irregularities were recorded in 16 of the 21 local government areas (LGAs) in the state, hence the decision to declare the elections inconclusive was just.

“My position is that the INEC REC did very well by declaring the result inconclusive and my reasons are simple,” she said on Friday during a monitored programme on Channels Television .

“Whoever saw or monitored the election of Adamawa State knows that the election was marred with violence, rigging, over-voting and all manner of irregularities.”

“The figures that were deposed were really, as far as I’m concerned, concocted figures.”

According to her, several of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) devices were bypassed, allowing for over-voting and intimidation of electoral staff in a number of locations.

“[For instance] if the BVAS accredited only 10 people, you’ll find out that over 30 people must have voted. That is part of irregularities,” she added.

According to her, the only way for the Resident Electoral Commission (REC) to “come out clean” was to declare that result inconclusive.

Citing the Electoral Act, she argued that INEC has the powers to review the results within seven days to determine whether any declaration was made under duress or where it failed to comply with the electoral laws and regulations.

“I’m never afraid, but all I’m asking is that let INEC please conduct a review on this said local governments so that it will bring out the real figures for all the candidates,” the APC candidate said when asked if she was worried about winning the rerun.

“That is all I am asking, and as soon as that is done, we would be home and dry, and then we would be confident to go back to the field.”

On the possibility of becoming the first elected female governor, Ahmed said she feels great and happy.

“I’m not doing this for Binani; I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing it for every girl child in this country. It’s for all the women in Nigeria,” she added.

BREAKING: Adeleke Reinstated As Osun State Governor



Ademola Adeleke has been reinstated as governor of Osun state once again by the court of appeal in Abuja.

Fidel Info reports that A three-member panel of justices ruled in Adeleke’s appeal on Friday, concluding that the electoral tribunal erred in finding that Gboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress had proven their claim of excessive voting.

Adeleke is the legitimately elected governor of the state, according to the jury that rendered its decision on Friday.

The Osun governorship election tribunal, in January, held that Oyetola was able to prove that there was over-voting in some of the polling units.

Consequently, the majority judgment of the tribunal ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and issue a fresh one to Oyetola as the duly elected governor of Osun.

Dissatisfied with the ruling, Adeleke appealed the judgment.
