– APC Primaries: Katsina APC rep candidate cries foul
– Katsina APC Rep candidate alleged being substituted after primaries
The winner of the APC primary for Bakori/Danja Federal House of Representatives, Engr. Yakubu Nuhu Danja, has raised concerns over alleged substitution of his name by the national headquarters of the party.
Engr. Danja polled 314 votes to defeat the incumbent Member, Amiru Bakori, with 305 votes in the primary and was declared winner by the APC National Electoral Committee in the state headed by Dr. Isah Adamu.
He said efforts by Gov. Aminu Bello Masari and the party’s Chairman in the state, Shittu Shittu, to correct the anomaly were being frustrated by some forces in Abuja.
“I will be left with no other option than to resort to litigation given that the period of final substitution and correction of candidates is fast approaching,” he said.
