A former Governor of Katsina State, Barrister Ibrahim Shehu Shema has expressed his dissatisfaction with how the recently concluded local government election held in the State was conducted.

DAILY REPORT NG reported that APC Won 31 Chairmanship, 328 Councillorship Seats in the election.

Addressing journalists in his home town, Dutsin-ma on Monday, Shema described the poll as as a monumental fraud.

He said the election was a shame on the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC not only in the state but nationwide.

According to him: “what is happening today, APC people are carrying result sheets in some places. They are holding the result sheets to return to government house to meet Aminu Bello Masari and his cohorts to fill these forms and tell Nigerians that election has been conducted.

“In other places like Danmusa, I saw pictures of young boys brought from the bush supposedly by the Secretary to the State government, Mustapha Inuwa.

“They have been brought to come and thumb print since yesterday, and announce the result in the Local Government Secretariat,”

“So in essence, Nigeria is in a sorry state, with rising insecurity on a daily basis, hunger, poverty, despair and destruction to every institution in Nigeria, yet we are now faced with monumental fraud in elections under the APC-led administration.

“This is not an election but a sham and a shame on APC nationwide and a shame internationally, that they can’t hold a common local government election.

“I am hugely disappointed at the government of Aminu Bello Masari and those who are behind him to carry on with this illegality unlimited,”
