Borno PDP Knocks APC For Dragging Party’s Senatorial Candidate To Court
The Borno State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) for dragging the party’s senatorial candidate to court.
The PDP added that the APC has no right to drag its Borno central senatorial candidate to court.
Borno PDP gubernatorial candidate, Ali Jajari, stated this yesterday in Maiduguri while reacting to the judgment of the Federal High Court sitting in Maiduguri which ruled that the case filed by the APC and its Borno Central senatorial candidate, Kaka Shehu Lawan, against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for listing Mohammed Kumalia as Borno Central Senatorial candidate of PDP.
According to him, “the party’s position is that the APC has no right to take our candidate to court and we will make an appeal”.
LEADERSHIP recalls that the APC and its Borno Central senatorial candidate averred in their suit that Kumalia did not participate in the primaries that produced the candidates contesting for various political positions in PDP and that he should not have been enlisted for the 2023 general elections.
Jajari explained that the national secretariat had recently communicated to him that Kumalia remains the candidate for Borno central.
