The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Adamawa State, Aisha Dahiru Binani, has dismissed the claim of a N2billion bribe. The suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Hudu Yunusa-Ari had declared the Senator the winner of the election on Sunday under controversial circumstances. Binani said her attention was drawn to a bizarre and wild allegation made by an officer of the Department of State Services (DSS) that the flagbearer gave out N2billion to some unnamed Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials.
The lawmaker described herself as a committed democrat who will never do anything to subvert democratic process. She said the REC was illegally told to stand down by two INEC national commissioners from Abuja who were supposed to be in Adamawa in a supervisory capacity. Binani urged all lovers of democracy to take a deeper interest in the electoral process and democracy not only in Adamawa but in the whole country.
