Published

One of the APC aspirants for Maru/Bungudu federal constituency Abdulrahaman Muhammad Tumbido has raised alarm that, the primary election conducted for Maru/ Bungudu on Friday by the APC is no more than a film making process.

The aspirants who spoke in an exclusive interview with the Managing Editor of Thunder Blowers Multi-media Services said, the exercise conducted for primary election is not in compliance with the statutory electoral guidelines.

He raised concern that, the procedure used for the accreditation of the delegates was in breach of the electoral guidelines; hence names were called without asking for the voters cards and membership cards of the delegates.

“When we confronted the Chairman that the procedure applied in the accreditation process is in breach of the electoral guidelines, he confessed that he does not even have electoral guidelines for the conduct of the APC primaries and as a result, he could not ascertain what the position of the law said”.

He also alleged that, one of the aspirants Zannan Bungudu used the mighty of the state government to camp the delegates at the command guest-in for two days noting that, on the election day, the delegate were moved in company of security operatives to the venue of the election directly.

“Surprisingly, they produced the delegate list, they succeeded in camping them in a hotel but on the election day they do not have confidence in the sincerity of these delegates and they have to assigned three people to be writing names of their anointed candidate for them”

He accused the member representing Maru North Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma, Commissioner Special Duties Abdul’aziz Nahuche and member representing Bungudu West Nasiru Lawal Bungudu of manipulating the entire exercise and for casting the whole votes on behalf of the delegates.

He said when he confronted the state party Chairman Tukur Danfulani over the ongoing irregularities by the three state government agents, the remarks from the party Chairman were demoralizing, noting that the scenario influenced him and other aspirant Dr. Bashir Maru to continue to cast suspicion that justice would not be done to them.

Furthermore, he also described as unfortunate that this action is demonstrated in the presence of the Speaker of Zamfara state house of Assembly Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya and could not raise his concern.

On the next line of action he said, he has open consultation with his followers on the next line of action adding that, soonest, he will intimate the public on what to do next.

“I wonder when does Abdulmalik Zubairu re-register with the APC again because as per as we knew, he has left the APC and formally register with the PDP and also to the best of our knowledge he was not issued with the waiver to contest for the post of Maru/Bungudu by the National headquarters of the party.

“If they wanted the car to be returned as claimed, let them tell the world how the Governor donated out the car to me through late Ibrahim Mallaha of blessed memory. The Governor gave the car to late Mallaha for onward handing over to me as personal donation, and I am certain if they met the him, he will confirm this to them.

“I am not in politics for vehicle, asked those who were with us in 2019. I used my personal Peugeot (406) to move with the Governor throughout the campaign period. I was not paid even money for fuel and the Governor knew that, and may be in his wisdom that was why he decided to dash me a vehicle I did not beg for”.

On the new security measures taken by the Governor, Shatiman Rijiya said he is sure the measures are targeted at the supporters of the PDP and because election is approaching, noting that they have every reason to entertain fear.
