One of the aspirants contesting for the chairmanship position in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Abdullahi Jibrin Imam has called for the cancelation of the just concluded APC primaries in AMAC over omission of his name from the ballots papers.
Hon. Abdullahi who made this call in a press conference yesterday expressed disappointment that his aspiration was dented by the electoral committee by deliberately denying him the right to contest the primary after he paid for the form and met all the requirements.
According to him, the reason for the discrepancy in the election was because the process was not free and fair, and for the committee to compensate the power in authority, a none party man was brought and imposed on the people as winner of the primary election.
“After the primary election, it was visible that the party faithful are not happy and they are very angry with the election. And because of this development, it is obvious that the APC will definitely find it very difficult to win the general election.
“The truth is that it was unfair to allow the chairman of AMAC to impose a candidate on us, after my name was omitted from the ballot papers. I will not rest until I get justice, because I deserved to contest the election and I do not see any reason why my name should be omitted.
“If there was justice and fairness in the whole process, I would have considered it and allow things the way it is, but since there was none, I will not rest until I get justice for the injustice done to me by omitting my name from the ballot papers and denying me the right to contest the election,” he said.
