Tinubu rally called off again as Taraba APC crisis deepens

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate

JALINGO – The internal crisis rocking the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has deepened with the postponement of its presidential rally scheduled for today, Monday, 13 February for the third time in a roll.

The rally was abruptly was called off in an announcement by the party in Jalingo late on Sunday.

The sudden announcement said the rally has been put off for another day due to “lack of a conducive atmosphere.”

An earlier announcement had directed party members to converge on Monday to receive the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The sudden postponement has sparked off more discussions that the internal crisis may have reached a head and dead end as no
concrete reason was given for the postponement.

Checks showed that the latest postponement might not be unconnected with the illegal primaries conducted on Friday by the Senator Emmanuel Bwacha faction of the APC.

Trouble started for the APC when the Supreme Court voided the primaries that produced Senator Emmanuel Bwacha in a unanimous decision and sacked him.

There was also no room for a fresh primary election.

Surprisingly, Bwacha and his team last Friday went ahead to conduct a fresh primaries which saw all the other five governorship aspirants boycotting the exercise.

They have all since petitioned INEC.

Meanwhile, the last time the presidential rally was called off, it was attributed to the confusion over rally funds.

Bwacha reportedly hijacked the funds that should have been with the chairman of the organising committee and Minister of Transportation, Jaji Sambo.
