A Chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that the February 25 Senatorial election in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT was blatantly rigged.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC had declared Ireti Kingibe of the Labour Party winner of the poll.
But Fani-Kayode in a tweet on Wednesday, alleged that Ireti’s election was the most rigged poll in the just concluded general elections.
According to him, the alleged irregularities that played out during the election would be exposed at the election tribunal.
He wrote, “The most blatant rigging that took place in the last elections was the Senatorial election in the FCT. I have lived in Abuja for 22 years & to say that Ireti Kingibe, the Labour Party candidate, won the election is a joke. All will be exposed at the election tribunal and justice shall prevail.
“To “elect” an Obidient who constantly seeks to demean, ridicule and undermine the indigenous Gbagyi population to represent the good people of the FCT in the Senate is not only part of a wider agenda to undermine and destroy the unity of our country but also constitutes a security risk and a surreptitious attempt to change the demographics of our nation’s capital. This must be resisted at all costs and by all lawful means”.
