Unconfirmed media reports reaching Today’s Echo indicate that the national secretary of the Alliance for New Nigeria has sued factional presidential candidate of the party, Fela Durotoye over what he describes as signature forgery.
In a report available to Today’s Echo, the other party alleges that, “following their realization that INEC did not recognize the presidential primaries conducted by Emanuel Dania and his cohorts in ANN, the FD team are panicking and devised a means to blackmail INEC and hoodwink the entire world by hurriedly putting together a certificate of return and presented to FD.”
This is now in wide circulation since it was released. A quick review of the certificate shows that the signature of the ANN National Secretary, Alhaji Sahid Umar was forged. Following this, the National Secretary has initiated criminal proceedings.
The remainder of the report, released by an online publication is indicated below:
“Recall that, in his many schemes to make himself the presidential candidate of ANN by all means, FD masterminded the Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) initiative. Our investigation then revealed that, working with some of his colleagues who knew they had no chance in the race, they convinced Kingsley Moghalu to participate in the process giving him guarantees that he will emerge victorious. We also learned that Oby Ezekwesili was hoodwinked to be an umpire to give legitimacy to the process.
The sub plot of the PACT arrangement was that, having emerged as the consensus candidate in a field of 17 aspirants from various parties, ANN will be left with no choice than to accept FD as its Presidential candidate. Of course we all know what became of PACT, any house built of spittle will not stand.
It is not enough to mouth or teach integrity but it should permeate every fabric of our being. FD and Emmanuel Dania’s actions have shown that they are not worthy of leadership positions”
