PDP Govt Plans to Rig Taraba LG Elections – APC Alleges

The Taraba State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has asserted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is plotting to undermine the upcoming local government elections.


This was disclosed in a statement released to the press in Jalingo, the state capital, on Monday.

The statement, signed by the chairman of the APC in the state, Barrister Ibrahim Tuktur El-Sudi, expressed the party’s concern over certain PDP leaders who are allegedly pressuring Governor Agbu Kefas to disregard caution and pre-determine the election results before the voting even occurs.

“It is not difficult to understand the state of despondency and disenchantment within the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in Taraba State at the moment.

“The party is now a haven of a disillusioned, angry, and disoriented mob of stakeholders who are completely uncertain about their future after contributing their efforts to the so-called victory of the party during the last election.

“With this devastating and distressing situation, Tarabans are not sure of anything as they contend with the paralysing and harrowing hard times under Governor Kefas,” parts of the statement said.
