Ngama Rejects Yobe LGAs Elections, Accuses Governor Operating From Abuja With Family, Commissioners


ngamaNigeria’s Minister of State Finance, Yerima Ibrahim Ngama who hailed from Yobe State on Saturday rejected Saturday’s local government elections in his home state.

The Minister who insisted that there cannot be election in a State of Emergency accused Governor Ibrahim Gaidam of double standard on the basis that, the governor, his wife, children, and some commissioners operates from Abuja, hence he wonder the hypocrisy that the atmosphere in the state was conducive for elections.

The minister while rejecting the All Progressive Congress (APC) victory in Abuja said, “If he is saying that there was election, it is a shame. Because himself the governor sleeps here in Abuja. He is here in Abuja with his wife and children, if they said there was election, who was seen with his wife among his commissioners.

“I was home in Potiskum and there was even problem that week that led to the killing of about seven persons. It is laughable and shame if they are telling the world that there was election. They just went and write results and returned their selected people.”

Spokesman of Gaidam, Abdullahi Bego could not be reached but it would be recalled that Gaidam has two months back denied a report of SaharaReporters that he has relocated his family to Abuja.
