Some stakeholders of All Progressives Congress (APC) from Toto Local Government Area (LGA) of Nasarawa State have rejected the outcome of the July 31 wards congresses in the area.
The stakeholders led by Alhaji Zakari Shuaibu, Chairmanship aspirant in the recently conducted primaries of the party preparedtory to the October 6 LG elections and Suleiman Zuburu stated this while briefing newsmen on Monday in Lafia, Nasarawa State.
Mr Suleiman Zuburu who spoke on behalf of the group alleged that some prominent people in government from Toto LGA had hijacked the process in violation to the rules and guidelines of the Congress by the party.
He explained that the government officials just satdown in Lafia and compiled list of their loyalists and submitted to the party.
“They retained all wards officials that supported their imposed Chairmanship candidate in the recently held primaries and removed the names of those that voted for other candidates.
“They replaced the names removed with their relatives in all the 12 electoral wards in Toto,” he added.
He explained they completely sidelined and suppressed the peace loving people of Toto LGA and denied them perticipation in the congresses contrary to the directive by Governor Abdullahi Sule and the party leadership in the state.
He therefore appealed to the governor to intervene and ensure that the party members are carry along in the best interest of the party.
He also appealed to leadership of the party in the state to counsel the congresses of Toto and carryout thorough investigation to accerten the truth with a view of correcting it.
