I Did Not Offer Anyone Money To Declare Me Winner – Binani


The All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Adamawa State, Senator Aishatu Dahiru Binani, has said she did not offer anyone any money to be declared her winner of the election.

A video of the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of Adamawa State Hudu Yunusa-Ari, shortly after the illegal announcement, had gone viral online showing Ari saying he received a N2bn bribe to announce Binani as the winner.

In the video, Ari was seen with a bloodied mouth, torn brown captain with cap in hand and speaking at gunpoint.

Binani, on Tuesday, however, denied the allegation, adding that an officer of the Department of State Services made the “very bizarre, unfounded wild allegations” against her.

The statement read, “I NEVER DID, I would never do such. This said the statement was allegedly made when the officer was being tortured at gunpoint by the agents of the Adamawa State Governor and the Government House police team alongside their political thugs.

“I wish to reiterate that I am a democrat, I have always been a committed democrat and will never do anything to subvert democratic process. I am not a do-or-die politician. In the past, I have won elections into the House of Representatives and the Senate in a free and fair manner.

“What happened in Adamawa was an unsuccessful attempt to subvert the will of the people. 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. Even more curious is the nocturnal visit of some INEC national officers to Adamawa State Government House and the bizarre declaration the same day after the visit that they have taken over the collation through the backdoor, with the Collation and Returning Officers selected by the Governor of Adamawa.

“The roles of these INEC officers from Abuja and the real mission of the two to the Government House should be of interest to all democrats.

“I urge all lovers of democracy to take a deeper interest in our electoral process and democracy not only in Adamawa but in the whole country.

“Meanwhile to all my supporters both within and outside Adamawa, I wish to use this opportunity to thank you for your unflinching support, in the midst of half-truths and opposition smear propaganda.”
