KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – The Kaduna state chapter of the People’s Redemption Party, (PRP), on Thursday, described the Justice A.H. Suleiman’s ruling on the Kaduna Central Senatorial District elections against its candidate; Senator Shehu Sani, as nothing but a Judicial coronation of fraud.
In a statement signed by the state Chairman of the party, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Danbirni, made available to newsmen in Kaduna, said the ruling, a two hours of hot air wasted to cannonize chicanery, had further claimed that its candidate actually won the polls.
According to the statement, the ruling represented a rape of justice and the crowning and glorification of electoral robbery, and vowed to appeal the ruling without delay.
“The PRP Kaduna State chapter rejects and condemn the ruling of the State and National Assembly Elections ribunal on the petition brought before it on the 2019 National Assembly Elections with regards to our candidate, Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani.
“We wish to bring to spotlight that the tribunal:
Failed to grant our request for a recount of the votes.
“The defendant APC candidate never presented even a single witness to the court to justify his victory.
“The lawyer that represented INEC is Governor Elrufai’s personal Attoney.
“The Tribunal didn’t inform the legal counsel of our candidate Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani of the date of the ruling.
“We maintain that our candidate for the 2019 National Assembly Elections Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani won the Kaduna Central SENATORIAL ELECTION.
“Our candidates votes were clean and their votes were embellished, padded and fused with steroids, typical of their bogus integrity and dubious honesty.
“The so called APC victory was a product of falsification of figures, ballot stuffing, suppression of our votes and mass thumb printing in their favor, refusal to use card readers, of which the tribunal blessed with the gavel of the court.
“The whole of the registered voters in Kaduna Central are less than the overall votes allocated to those that contested.
“We shall without doubt appeal this ruling without delay.
“No change can come with people who rig elections; Nothing good can come from representatives who mount the seat of office with a tainted, muddy and Doping mandate.
“Nigeria’s 2019 general elections is globally adjudged to be fraudulent because of examples like this,” the statement reads.
