Protest over Kwara APC gov’ship contest

Supporters of Alhaji Shuaibu Yaman Abdullahi, one of the governorship aspirants of the APC in Kwara State, yesterday, staged a protest in Ilorin on the grounds that the outcome of the gubernatorial primary election conducted in the state was a product of injustice.
In a letter to the National Working Committee of the APC, the Director General of Yaman Support Group, Bode Towoju, said agents and collation officers of his principal were threatened and treated unfairly.
“Our agents and collation officers were denied copies of the result sheet at the voting centres, although collation was done at the various wards and our agent reported the result to our central monitoring and situation centre for proper update of our records,” he said.
Towoju who had earlier addressed journalists in Ilorin during a protest, said that the electoral panel that conducted the gubernatorial primary election discarded zoning and consensus arrangement as advocated by concerned foundation members of the party.
“It is the turn of the Kwara North to produce the next governor of the state in 2019 in the interest of fairness, equality, justice and togetherness,” he said.
