No APC senatorial primary in Plateau South — Tallen
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.
