The African Action Congress (AAC) has strongly refuted claims of endorsing the “charade” represented by the Kogi State governorship election held on Saturday, November 11.
The party staunchly maintained that the electoral process lacked the fundamental elements for a free, fair, and credible poll.
In response to claims suggesting that political parties, including the AAC, had endorsed the election as credible and acceptable, the AAC leadership vehemently denied any such support for what they termed a “charade” of an election.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, AAC said that the All Progressives Congress (APC), in a desperate move to shop legitimacy for the electoral violence, has mischievously listed the party as one of the parties endorsing the charade that took place on Saturday.
The statement partly read: “In a desperate move to shop legitimacy for the electoral violence, the misconduct, gross malfeasance and fraud that occasioned Kogi elections conducted by both INEC and Yahaya Bello, the APC has mischievously listed our party, the AAC as one of the parties endorsing the charade that took place on Saturday.
“We want to state clearly that our party, the African Action Congress, did and will not endorse the criminality of Yahaya Bello, his stooge and their party, the APC.
“We maintain that the electoral processes fell short of every element of freeness or fairness, and until power is given based on the free will of the people, there’s no way bourgeoisie democracy can deliver the aspirations of the people.”
