PDP Governorship Candidate In Kaduna Rejects Outcome Of March 18 Election
The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna state, Isa Mohammed Ashiru has rejected the outcome of the March 18 governorship election in the state.
Naija News recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Uba Sani as the winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Kaduna.
In reaction to the declaration of the Electoral body, the PDP candidate said the outcome of the election did not reflect the wishes of the people.
In a statement released through his media aide, Reuben Buhari, in Kaduna on Tuesday, the governorship candidate thanked those who voted for him in the disputed election.
Mohammed Ashiru also urged everyone who supports the PDP and wants real leadership in Kaduna State to maintain peace and harmony.
The governorship candidate said, “People who believed in the vision my party and I stood for showed exemplary dedication, sacrifice, and commitment to our project. Despite challenges that include fuel and cash scarcity, insecurity, and threat, people still braved the odds to go and vote.
“And while the announcement of the result went through several postponements, they patiently and peacefully waited. I remain grateful for such commendable passion and support, especially the insight and guidance provided to me.”
Ashiru stressed that the entire electoral process, including the announced result which didn’t reflect the wish of the majority of Kaduna voters, would form the basis for future actions that could be taken by him and the party.
