APC Agent Rejects Bauchi Guber Election Results, Declines Signing

The agent of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State, Abdulmumini Muhammad Kundak, has rejected the results of the gubernatorial election in the state.

Kundak who alleged that there was violence and overvoting in 77 polling units in the Bauchi Local Government Area of the state, declined to sign the results. 

The state governor, Bala Mohammed, was declared the winner of the election on Monday by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) returning officer, Professor Abdulkarim Sabo Muhammed.

Rejecting the results which gave Bala of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) a second term victory, the APC agent said he made several complaints but nothing was done.

“I will not sign the result because it was a cooked result and I have raised the alarm and made several complaints to the returning officer but all turned a deaf ear.

"You are a living witness to the constitutional issues and provisions of the Electoral Act,” Kundak said.

Shortly after the returning officer of the Bauchi LGA, Dr Muhammad Mukhtar Musa had presented the results, Kundak said: “You only mention one reason, overvoting, for the cancellation of polling units, while you declined to report the violence in more than 70 polling units reported during collation under you, especially in Kundunron and Mummusar where APC party agents were attacked and injured.

“Again in Burshin Miri, the returning officer and two of our agents were kidnapped and whisked to an unknown destination. 

"When they raised the alarm, the police arrested them.

“In Shekal Primary School, our agents were compelled to sign the results sheet after negotiation failed and he signed it under duress. 

"Are all these and other complaints not enough for you to report the reasons for cancellation except overvoting?

“You will hear our next line of action after I consult with my gubernatorial candidate about what transpired. 

"We want to thank the people of Bauchi State for the massive support and solidarity and I equally called on them to remain calm as the leadership of the party will follow legitimate means to reclaim their mandates.”
