The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) Kaduna State Chapter has described the ruling of the Kaduna Central Senatorial District Election Petition Tribunal against its candidate, Senator Shehu Sani as a rape on democracy and coronation of judicial fraud.
The party expressed this in a statement, signed by the Kaduna State chairman, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Danbirni, made available to our correspondent on Thursday August 22, which further claimed its candidate was the actual winner of the polls.
“The PRP Kaduna STATE chapter rejects and condemn the ruling of the State and National Assembly Elections tribunal on the petition brought before it on the 2019 National Assembly Elections with regards to our candidate Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani.
“The Justice A.H Suleiman ruling was nothing but a Judicial coronation of fraud.
Two hours of hot air wasted to canonize chicanery,” it stated.
It further outlined that, “We wish to bring to spotlight that the tribunal (1)Failed to grant our request for a recount of the votes. (2)The defendant APC candidate never presented even a single witness to the court to justify his victory. (3)The lawyer that represented INEC is Governor Elrufai’s personal Attorney. (4)The Tribunal didn’t inform the legal counsel of our candidate Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani of the date of the ruling.
“The ruling represents a rape of justice and the crowning and glorification of electoral robbery.”
The party maintained that its 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 favour, refusal to use card readers, of which the tribunal blessed with the gavel of the court.
The party further argued that 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,” it vowed.
The statement lamented that Nigeria’s 2019 general elections is globally adjudged to be fraudulent because of examples like this.
