Ireti Kingibe Was Rigged Into The Senate… Fani Kayode

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, and former Minister of Aviation Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that the Senatorial election in the Federal Capital Territory was rigged in favour of the candidate of the Labour Party, Ireti Kingibe.

The former Director of New Media committee of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council said it is demeaning and unheard of that an Obidient candidate who constantly seeks to ridicule and undermine the indigenous Gbagyi population in FCT will be elected to represent the good people of the FCT in the Senate is not only part of a wider agenda to undermine and destroy the unity of our country but also constitutes a security risk and a surreptitious attempt to change the demographics of our nations capital. This he said must be resisted at all costs and by all lawful means.

Fani Kayode said ” this is the most blatant rigging that took place in the last elections, and in the FCT. I have lived in Abuja for 22 years & to say that Ireti Kingibe, the Labour Party candidate, won the election is a joke. All will be exposed at the election tribunal and justice shall prevail” he concluded .

Recall that Ireti Kingibe scored 202,175 votes to emerge the winner of the Senatorial election while Philip Aduda of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came second with 100,544 votes. Angulu Dobi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) placed third with 78,905 votes.
