Taraba Muslim Communities Reject APC Candidate, Sen Emmanuel Bwacha Ahead Of Election



Emmanuel Bwacha


By Oluwatosin Alex

The Muslim communities in Taraba state have rejected the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Emmanuel Bwacha ahead of the governorship election set to hold on Saturday, 11th Of March, 2023.

Senator Emmanuel Bwacha visited communities in  Jalingo, Yorro, Ardo-Kola, Karim Lamido, Lau and Zing to sell his candidacy and to also push the religion narrative but was vehemently resisted by a total rejection by the populace of the communities.

According to reports, Emmanuel Bwacha had gone to meet some of the Islamic scholars in these communities to seek their support and ‘bribed’ them with millions of naira to support his bid to become the next governor of the state.

It was however not revealed if the influential Islamic scholars accepted the largesse but an attempt to get the support of the populace failed totally.

This has added to the challenges Emmanuel Bwacha has faced since the beginning of his campaign. He currently doesn’t know if he is a contestant or not because the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has refused to include his name on the ballot. He was in court a few days ago to seek an order asking the electoral commission to include his name but no positive development has come out of it.

Several allegations have trailed senator Emmanuel Bwacha following his ambition. He has been accused of conniving with INEC officials to rig the election, making plans to manipulate the BVAS device, attempting to contaminate the security system during the election, and many more which he is yet to debunk.
