APC Party Is Prepared For Anything, Even If It Means To Steal The Ballots Or By Persuasion - Binani

According to Sahara Reporters, the leaked video of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani, has caused a stir in Adamawa State and beyond. In the video, Binani was heard boasting that her party is prepared to do anything, including stealing the ballots or using persuasion, to win the upcoming 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.

Such a statement from a governorship candidate is not only alarming but also unacceptable in a democratic society. The sanctity of the ballot box is sacrosanct and must be respected by all political actors. Any attempt to subvert the will of the people is a direct attack on democracy and the rule of law.

It is particularly worrying that Binani spoke about stealing the ballots or using persuasion to win the election. Both acts are illegal and violate the electoral laws of Nigeria. Persuasion may be considered as lobbying for votes, but stealing ballots is a criminal act that undermines the credibility of the electoral process and the mandate of the people.

As a governorship candidate, Binani should be focused on articulating her plans and programs for the people of Adamawa State. She should be campaigning on the strength of her ideas and track record, not on the basis of stealing the ballots or using any other illegitimate means to win the election.

It is also important to note that Binani's statement does not reflect the position of the APC as a party. The APC is a democratic party that believes in the rule of law and the sanctity of the ballot box. The party's leadership must condemn such statements and ensure that all its candidates and members abide by the electoral laws and regulations.

The statement attributed to the APC governorship candidate in Adamawa State is disturbing and must be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. The electoral process must be free, fair, and credible to ensure that the people's mandate is respected and upheld. All political actors, including Binani and the APC, must respect the laws and regulations governing the electoral process and refrain from making statements that could undermine democracy and the rule of law.
