He distanced himself from rigging the election and denied all allegations he was in Fofure, the venue of the election saga. Because he was leading with a good margin he wouldn’t waste his time rigging the election.
“Because I was already leading, Fofure was the only Local Government left for them to perfect their rigging plans, she sent one of her Boy to steal the summary sheet of the result when they are tabulating it.” He said
Ahmadu during the one-on-one Television live program with Seun stressed that he was never in Fofure but the people of Fofure were there to save and guide the entire exercise.
Ahmadu also denied holding anyone hostage, he revealed that the same returning officer that conducted the election exercise in Fofure was the same officer that declare the result at the INEC state collation center in Yola.
“As I told you these are people who are pathological liars, they have lost the election because of desperation they don’t want to accept the reality on the ground. They are still thinking that we are still in the stoned age.
“The Resident Election Officer (REC) after he realized there was ballot stuffing called the returning officer and told him I’m sending a new result sheet to you and make sure you help that woman because I’m under duress from above.” He started
He accused Adamawa REC, Barr Yunusa Hudu of being a prime suspect and crux of the entire hullabaloo of the present situation of an inconclusive election in the state.
“He thought they can use the new summary result sheets to change the results figure in favor of Binani when he discovered they can not temper with the result he delayed declaring the result until Monday at 2 pm. By this time his calculation was to temper with the INEC RVAs portal to give the woman the margin votes of winning election all to no avail because INEC has perfected the technology of rigging election.” Fintiri accused the REC
