The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani’s allegations of ‘foul play’ in his case at the election tribunal.
Sani is contesting his loss at the Kaduna Central senatorial election to Uba Sani of the APC.
The Senator, who contested on the platform of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) lost to Sani at the primary election in the APC before switching allegiance to his current party.
He accused the electoral commission of using the same attorney used by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai at the tribunal.
“We have enough evidence that A.U Mustapha is a personal lawyer to Nasiru El-Rufa’i, Governor of Kaduna State.
“He is the one representing Governor El-Rufa’i in a case of defamation which he filed against me in four courts in Kaduna State.
“As a personal lawyer to El-Rufa’i now hired by INEC in a case where El-Rufai is a party is not acceptable.
