Primaries: Committee member shot in Taraba – Chairman

News
A member of the Taraba State All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship primary electoral committee has been shot and is in critical condition at a hospital.
Chairman of the Committee, Lawrence Onuchukwu, disclosed this to newsmen at the Police Headquarters in Jalingo, the state capital on Thursday night.
A protest had erupted after some youths in Jalingo accused the governorship primary committee chairman of presenting fake result sheets for the primary when there was none in the state.
The protesting youths also alleged that the state had difficult-to-reach terrains such as Sardauna Local Government Area which takes seven to nine hours to reach, especially the Mambilla Plateau.
Consequently, they argued that it was not possible to conduct elections in one day and get the results.
The youths are calling on Onuchukwu to address the press on the true situation of things and declare that the primary election failed to hold.
