Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

A for­mer Deputy Gov­er­nor of Plateau State, Pauline Tallen, yes­ter­day, faulted the re­sult of the APC sen­a­to­rial pri­mary in Plateau South, say­ing no elec­tion took place.

Tallen, an as­pi­rant for the ticket, al­leged ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in the con­duct of the pri­mary.

Daily Trust re­ports that de­tails of the re­sult, as an­nounced by the elec­toral of­fi­cer, Abu Isa, shows that a for­mer Deputy Gov­er­nor of the state, Ig­natius Long­jan, emerged win­ner, hav­ing scored 972 votes to de­feat Nan­ven Nim­fel who scored 786 votes.

Jib­rin Banchir, Tallen and Stephen Dashe Teel scored 41, nine and five votes re­spec­tively.

How­ever, Tallen de­scribed the pri­mary as “a cha­rade” which did not meet the stan­dard set by the APC.
