The Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Mohammed Sani-Sidi, has assured Vice- President Namadi Sambo that he would use his resources and position to reclaim Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency in court.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Jagaba Adams Jagaba, won the Kachia/ Kagarko Federal Constituency, while John Audu Kwaturu and
Nuhu Goro won the Kaduna State House of Assembly, in Kachia and Kagarko, respectively.
Sani-Sidi, it was alleged, had earlier used thugs to disrupt elections, at the APC strongholds, when he realised APC was winning, which led to the cancellation of election results in those areas by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“We have gathered reliably that, during a meeting of stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sani-Sidi promised Sambo that he would use his position to ensure that all the election won by APC in Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency were reversed in favour of PDP candidates winners,” Umar Garba, a chieftain of the APC told journalists.
He said, in order to keep to his promise, Sani-Sidi had disbursed money to the PDP candidates who lost at the polls, and hired a senior lawyer close to Sambo to pursue the State and the House of Representatives cases in court.
When contacted by a text message, Sani-Sadi forwarded same to one Ahmed Maiyaki, the Director-General to the out-going Kaduna State governor on Media and Publicity. Ahmed Maiyaki pleaded that the story should be spiked.
