The Chairman of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Bauchi State, Alhaji Hamza Akuyam, has challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to go to court if the APC has issues with the re-election of Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara.
Akuyam threw the challenge on Tuesday in Bauchi while reacting to Monday’s news conference by the APC where it alleged that Dogara’s re-election was marred by irregularities.
He said that the re-election of Dogara in Tafawa Balewa, Bogoro and Dass Federal Constituency in Saturday’s National Assembly election was done in line with electoral guidelines.
Akuyam observed that no adverse report was issued either by international or domestic election observers or security agencies during the polls.
He, therefore, wondered where APC might get its own facts that the polls were marred by irregularities.
Akuyam said that APC under the leadership of Alhaji Uba Nana raised various issues just to simply discredit the election.
According to him, Nana simply addressed journalists to cause mischief and to subvert the PDP’s ideals.
The PDP chairman further observed that in spite of false claims by APC, there was no petition written either by the party or any individual to disclaim Dogara’s victory.
He challenged APC chieftains in the state to seek legal redress if they felt strongly about the re-election of Dogara.
