APC Wants Cross River Guber Election Cancelled

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from confessions of arrested kidnapper, Hamisu Bala aka Wadume that the ruling party gave him N13m as a political thug during the last presidential elections.

Wadume had alleged that the APC gave him 13million for the February 23 presidential election, while Darius Ishaku, governor of Taraba state, gave him N6 million for the elections.

However, in a statement by the APC on Saturday, it’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu said such era ended with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

“It is expected that the alleged kidnapper, having come face to face with justice, would throw whatever he could lay his hands on into the fray,” he said.

“In any case, our party did not have a budget for thugs. Unlike the period when the ruling party dipped hands into the public treasury to fund political campaigns and elections, APC had to rely on its own resources. Even if we had all the money, we would never allocate money for kidnappers and murderers. That era ended with PDP.

“Perhaps, he can name whoever gave him money. Definitely, it was not APC. From his purported confession, he claimed to be a PDP member before he went on to contest under another party.”
