The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance in Nasarawa State, Mr. Labaran Maku, on Wednesday, rejected the result of the just concluded governorship election declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission in the state.
In a statement issued in Lafia, Maku said he would continue to fight for social liberty and justice.
The statement read, “We will fight until freedom, liberty and justice are attained for all our people regardless of ethnic, religious and social origins.”
He also alleged that there were widespread fraud, conspiracy and collusion among electoral and security stakeholders during the election.
He said he did not lose the governorship election to Governor Tanko Al-Makura of the All Progressives Congress.
He also said the governorship election was characterised with widespread reports of ballot theft and irregularities in government quarters.
Reacting to the allegations, the state chairman of the APC, Mr. Philip Shekwo, stated that Government House, Lafia, was not a polling unit for governorship election in the state.
“Government House, Lafia, is not a polling unit for the conduct of governorship election in the state,” he added
