- Ahmed Gulak has debunked Adams Oshiomhole's claim that he submitted fake primaries result for Imo state
- Gulak said he would not like to join issues with the party’s national chairman
Chairman of the Imo state electoral panel for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primaries, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, has denied claims by Adams Oshiomhole that he submitted fake governorship primary election result.
Gulak, while speaking to Sunrise Daily on Channels television on Wednesday, October 3, said he does not want to join issues with Oshiomhole but insisted the result is authentic.
Gulak said: “I don’t want to join issues with my national chairman. The result I submitted was not fake, is not fake and cannot be fake. Time will come when I will say what happened.”
Vanguard reports that Gulak alleged that some members of the electoral panel were abducted by the governor on arrival as according to him the panel members did not follow the governor to the government house with their full consent.
He also justified the reason for announcing the result of the primaries in Abuja, raising security concerns.
“I had to leave Owerri with four or five of my members that did not disappear."
