Election Outcome Was Divine – Niger PDP Gov’ship Candidate Speaks About Going To Tribunal




Isah Liman Kantigi

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger State, Liman Kantigi, has described the outcome of the last Saturday’s polls in the state as divine.

This is as he has declared that he won’t be contesting the results of the election in any tribunal because he has accepted what transpired on March 18 in good faith.

Naija News gathered that Kantigi while reacting to the outcome of the polls said there is no court or tribunal that is higher than the judgment of God, and that God knows the end from the beginning.

The Niger PDP flag bearer, who described the outcome of the election as divine, noted that “God monitors every situation,” so “Whether the winner won through the popularity, or he had used other means or whatever, it is God that made it possible for him.”

Kantigi, at a press briefing in Minna, the state capital on Friday, said he would not desist from fighting for the people as the outcome of the polls can not discourage him from politics.

He said “There is time for everything, elections have come and gone. Let us gather around whosoever God has put on the throne and join hands to look at the problems of Niger State.

“Believe me in all honesty, Niger State is being abandoned with so many lapses. The people are suffering, no infrastructural development and there is poverty everywhere.

“Can you Imagine how a common spaghetti, yards of clothing materials attracted people to sell their votes because they saw that as their last hope.

“We as leaders must address the issue of poverty in this country if we honestly want credible elections which will usher in good leadership.”

Speaking about his stand if the PDP in the state insists on challenging the results, he said that decision is entirely the party’s and not his.

He stated that “I strongly believe there is no court that is higher than the court of God, but if the party (PDP) so wish, they have the mandate to do so if they have the resources.”
