Members of the Buhari Support Project (BSP) 2019 are demanding for the cancellation of the party’s ward congress conducted in Adamawa state on Sunday, May 6.
The group in a petition by Usman Ibrahim to the ward and local government congress appeal committee in Yola alleged that the exercised was marred by electoral fraud.
Daily Trust reports that the group claimed that Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla’s loyalists colluded with the committee to concoct the list of winners and that the election did not hold in the 226 wards in the state.
The group said the foundation of justice and equity upon which the APC was founded was compromised when the congress committee refused to sell forms to hundreds of aspirants until a day to the election.
The petition alleged that the senior citizens including former secretary to government of federation, Babachir David Lawan, Senator Abdulaziz Nyako, and Senator Abubakar Mo-Allahyidi, who demanded for release of forms to aspirants were initially shunned by members of the congress committee.
"These senior citizens could not access members of the committee to demand release of forms until late on Friday. They released the forms around 5pm and reluctantly agreed to shift. None of our members is incorporated into the 226 congress committees", he said.
When receiving the petition, the chairman, congress appeal committee, Nuruddeen Abatemi Usman, commended the group for peaceful conduct in expressing their grievances.
Meanwhile, the minister of labour and employment Chris Ngige, has said those who orchestrated the violence that marred the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congress in Anambra were determined to brand the party as violent.
The Nation reports that Ngige in a statement on Tuesday, May 8, signed by his head of media office, Chikwelugo Obidiwe, accused Tony Nwoye of rehearsing the rogue ideology which had been a trademark from his former party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
