Taraba APC crisis ‘ll soon be over: Bwacha
Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha, the Taraba governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the crisis bedeviling the party in the state will soon be over.
Bwacha said this at a media briefing in Jalingo, saying that all litigations challenging his emergence as the state governorship candidate would soon be resolved.
He was reacting to the ruling of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which removed him as the state APC governorship candidate and ordered fresh primaries within 14 days.
The case was instituted by Sen. Yusuf Abubakar, challenging Bwacha’s emergence as the governorship candidate of the APC.
Also, the Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo in a suit filed by another governorship aspirant, Chief David Sabo-Kente removed Bwacha as the party’s governorship candidate and ordered another primary election.
But, Bwacha said that he has instituted appeals against the judgments, expressing confidence that the appellant court would resolve the issue in his favour.
“The issue of litigations will soon end and the people of Taraba want to form the APC government and I can assure you that we will not lose.
“We want to put an end to seasonal practice where politicians come from Abuja to contest elections, just to go back and look for appointments.
“The people of Taraba want to align with the center and I want to inform you that all the cases have been appealed.
“I want to call on my teeming supporters, not to worry about the decision of the lower court,” he said.
Bwacha added: “The National Secretariat of our party has intervened in the issue, but the happenings in the party especially the litigations are exacerbated by the activities of the opponents at the state level.
“The National Chairman sat with the aggrieved members and my colleagues at the National Assembly too did the same thing, but you know opponents in the state are afraid of the APC hurricane that is coming to take over and are doing everything to stop it, but it’s too late now because the people of Taraba have seen light,” he said.
