Two aspirants in the Adamawa governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress, Nuhu Ribadu and Mahmood Halilu, a brother in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari, have called for the cancellation of the results of the poll.

The governorship hopefuls rejected the results of the primary on the ground that the rescheduled primary which commenced late on Friday across the 226 wards in the state, was marred by irregularities.

Governor Mohammed Jibrilla, who faced a stiff challenge for the APC ticket from Ribadu and Mahmood, led in the official results released by the electoral committee headed by Maj. Gen. Lawrence Onoja (retd.).

Mahmood condemned the rescheduled primary conducted through the direct mode as a charade, alleging that the governor hijacked the process through some party agents.

The aspirant, who is Aisha Buhari’s brother, said, “There was a very serious high-level conspiracy that was orchestrated to hijack the primary and make it generally unacceptable.

“Materials were hijacked by officials of the state government who took them to unknown locations within the local government areas and results were written and posted on social media.

“This was the case in all the 226 wards in the state as results were written in the dark.”

He urged the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee not to allow the result of the primary to stand because, according to him, it violated guidelines outlined for its conduct.

Ribadu, who also joined in the rejection of the Adamawa governorship primary, urged the NWC of the party to cancel the exercise.
