Kwara: Why I will not congratulate Gov Abdulrazaq – PDP guber candidate, Yaman Abdullahi

The guber candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, Shuaib Yaman Abdullahi, in the last Saturday’s governorship election in Kwara State, has vowed not to congratulate AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the governor re-elect over his victory in the poll.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday, declared AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq winner of the Saturday governorship election.

AbdulRazaq candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, polled 273,424 votes to defeat his closest rival Yaman of the Peoples Democratic Party with 155,490 votes.

Yaman while speaking with journalists in Ilorin on Monday, said the last Saturday’s governorship election was fraught with electoral malpractices.

“For the fact that political thugs were used calls for concern among Nigerians, especially among our people and relevant stakeholders voter apathy in the last governorship elections was far greater than before, while the number of voters was greater than the presidential elections.

“I think INEC has questions to answer on the electoral process too.

“Security forces were used against people and I wouldn’t know if they are real security operatives used against the people, while the APC monetized the elections. Our collation officers were chased away in many places,” he alleged.

According to the PDP candidate, “I know one thing for sure that evil victory is temporary while that of the Almighty God’s victory is permanent. We leave everything to God.”

Yaman, who was emotional and closed to tears while addressing the party supporters, chastised some party members in some senatorial districts for their alleged acts of betrayal and anti-party activities.

“The spirit that keeps us should be kept alive. God will not repay your good intentions for bad. We need to recover from dark evil. We cannot afford to be led by incompetent and people who do not know what to do to lead. One day, our efforts would be beneficial to us or our children.

“Kwara will rise up again, and our group will thrive. This is a moment to retreat and ponder. This is not the end. Let’s prepare for the battle ahead. It’s not over yet,” he declared.
