New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Governorship Candidate, Professor Sani Muhammed Yahaya, has rejected Taraba governorship election results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Professor Yahaya, while reacting to the election results during a news conference in Jalingo on Tuesday, said the results were not what was actually recorded in the field.
He said he won the election but the results were manipulated, adding that people of the state knew that it was the NNPP that actually won the election.
The NNPP candidate disclosed that he would challenge the results in court pointing out that the legal process to reclaim his victory had started.
He urged his supporters to be calm and not take the law into their own hands.
But the All Progressives Congress Gubernatorial Candidate, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has congratulated Agbu Kefas of PDP who was declared winner of the election by INEC.
The Director of Media and Publicity of Senator Emmanuel Bwacha Campaign Council, Mr. Aaron Artimas, said APC governorship candidate took the outcome of the election in good faith and therefore congratulated Kefas.
