The defeated governorship candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State, Labaran Maku, has advised his supporters not to take the law into their own hands.

Maku who is an ex minister of information, disclosed this on Monday while speaking to some party supporters who visited his residence in Wakama in Nassarawa Eggon Local Government area of the state.

According to reports, the APGA governorship candidate stated that his decision to invite his supporters across the state to his residence was to express gratitude for their support during his electioneering.

He said “I want to thank you for your support throughout my electioneering campaign and for your votes.

“I thank God that no life was lost during my campaign as we moved together to all nooks and crannies of the state and the people supported us massively.

“I want to tell you that I have won my election just as I won my election in 2015, but we were rigged out.

“The election was marred by irregularities perpetrated by the INEC in collusion with some security agents to favour the opposition.

“Card readers were not used at all in some areas so as to perfect their plans as a ward in the state presented 80,000 votes in favour of APC candidate, this is rigging.

“I am calling on the lovers of democracy in the state and my supporters to remain committed and firm towards defending democracy in the state.”

Maku added that the initial reaction of the party was that the result was not the true reflection of the votes cast by the people.

However he pledged to continuous defense of the interests of the poor and to be the voice of the voiceless in the state.

In addition, the ex Information minister called on his supporters and other Nigerians to continue to uphold the law and respect constituted authorities in the interest of peace and development.

Abdullahi Sule of All Progressive Congress (APC) was declared as winner of Nasarawa gubernatorial election by INEC to defeat other opponents in the election as he polled 327,229 votes.
