"INEC Awarded Printing of It's Security Documents to A Candidate Running for Office" –Daniel Bwala

Daniel Hassan Bwala, the spokesperson for the presidential campaign of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), has berated the leadership of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for awarding the contract to print some sensitive security documents for the Commission to Binani Printing Press Limited, which was alleged to have belonged to Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Binani), a Nigerian lawmaker and the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State.

Recall that Barr. Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, had on Thursday evening released an official statement that partly read, "Procurements in the Commission (INEC) go through open competitive bidding, and Binani Printing Press Limited was one of the security printing companies that applied to print security documents for the Commission."

"After inspecting the company's facility and carrying out due diligence at the Corporation Affairs Commission (CAC), the Commission was satisfied that they are qualified printers with the requisite technical capacity, security consciousness, and expertise in printing security documents. However, Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed was not listed as one of the directors of Binani Printing Press Limited."

Reacting to the statement, Mr. Daniel Bwala said via a tweet on Thursday evening, "You awarded a contract for printing INEC sensitive security documents to the company owned by a candidate running for office under the guise that your due diligence showed she is not a director of that company. Sad!"
