Tension For El-rufai As Tribunal Takes Decision On Recount Of Votes




The election tribunal sitting at the State High Court in Kaduna State will soon decide on whether it will grant a recount of votes for the senatorial, gubernatorial and presidential elections, Naija News understands.

Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party and the gubernatorial candidate had prayed the courts for a recount of the votes following alleged manipulations of results by the ruling APC.

An informant indicated that the state Governor Nasiru El Rufai may be aware of the likelihood of the unfolding ruling, and as a result, have become tensed, adding that he (el-rufai) made frantic efforts to reach out to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) INEC electoral officers.

According to sources all attempts to ‘reach out’ to the INEC officers failed to yield expected results.

24/7u reports states that a top source at the INEC revealed that “the way the PDP is positioning itself through the court and the facts including witnesses presented at the court, there are strong indications the el-Rufai administration is already on its way out of Sir Kashim Ibrahim House”.

Meanwhile, at the Election Tribunal sitting at the State High Court, Lawal Adamu, popularly known as Mr. LA who contested for the Kaduna Central Senatorial seat under the PDP may be declared winner against Uba Sani of the APC who is an ally of Gov el-Rufai.
