Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has asked the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to take his celebration too far.
This intimidating comment followed the announcement of Ahmed Fintiri as winner of the gubernatorial election in Adamawa State.
He wrote, “To God be the glory! Binani has been put in the bin! The Peoples Democratic Party has emerged victorious, and Governor Umaru Fintiri had been re-elected. Congratulations to him. Big congratulations to Waziri Atiku Abubakar. This proves the victory of evil over good is only temporary! Now that Adamawa is in the bag, Tinubu, we are coming for you at the Presidential Election Petition Court. We won our Presidential candidate’s state. You could not win your own state. Be afraid. Be very afraid!”
It would be recalled that the returning officer for the election, declared Fintiri as the winner after the collation of the supplementary election results.
The final outcome of the rerun election indicated that that Fintiri, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), got 430,861 votes to defeat Aisha ‘Binani’ Dahiru, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who garnered 398,788 votes.
On Sunday, the just suspended resident electoral commissioner (REC), Hudu Yunusa-Ari had unofficially declared Binani the winner of the election, causing the suspension of the supplementary polls.
