No deal on electoral petitions, says AC


With the ongoing discussion on formation of government of national unity entered with the Umaru Yar’Adua-led-Federal Government, the Action Congress (AC) has insisted that all its cases before election petition tribunals across the country would be pursued to a logical conclusion.

With the ongoing discussion on formation of government of national unity entered with the Umaru Yar’Adua-led-Federal Government, the Action Congress (AC) has insisted that all its cases before election petition tribunals across the country would be pursued to a logical conclusion.

Dropping this hint yesterday in Lagos was the National Secretary of the party, Alhaji Bashiru Dalihatu, at a one-day conference of the party’s 36 state chairmen held at the Regency Hotel, Ikeja.

Dalihatu, who was represented at the conference by Alhaji Sagir Kumasi declared: “We are not prepared to drop any of our cases before the Election Petition Tribunals,” stressing that “the tribunal issue has nothing to do with the discussion with the Federal Government.”
The party’s scribe therefore urged the members not to relent in their efforts to ensure victory in future elections while charging them to guard their loins for the coming local government elections to ensure victory for the party.

In his welcome address, Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) buttressed Dalihatu’s claim, asserting that the conference was aimed at charting a course towards reclaiming the party’s mandate across the country. He vowed that there was no going back until the task was accomplished.
“As we begin this meeting, what should be paramount in our minds is that we desire to reclaim our stolen mandate and to restore the dignity of the people of Nigeria that has been put to shame in the various states by the PDP government through the callous rigging of the April election,” Fashola said, warning that: “Nobody should make the mistake of thinking that the last elections were a whirlwind that blows by and it is gone.”

“No, we are going to challenge every inch of our political territories that was stolen, we shall contest every pound of flesh ignominiously extracted from our body,” Fashola, who was represented by a party chieftain, Reverend Adetunji Adebiyi, vowed. He added: “We shall pursue this enterprise doggedly and constitutionally.”

While delivering his keynote address at the conference, the host chairman, Chief Henry Oladele Ajomole said part of the conference would be utilized to celebrate the achievement of the former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as well as a grand reception for the new governor.
