In Taraba state, Conflict has erupted between some political parties’s
agents who was on arrival at the INEC office in Jalingo from Ardo Kola LGA
as SDP agent presented #250,000 that was given to him as bribe by PDP.
The argument started when the SDP Agent raised an alarm to the
Administration of the Commision that the Electoral Officer of the area had
compromised, alledging that she was bribed by PDP members in the area.
The issue was raised before the Taraba state INEC Administration Secretary
Waziri Zanna where the SDP agent Jafar Manga presented two bundles of five
hundred naira notes before the public as evidence that said to have been a
bribed given to him by Alh. Tanimu Bala who is a Special Assistant to
Taraba state Governor Darius Ishaku on Grassroot.
Others involved in the said bribed scandal are PDP agent as well as the
Secretary of Ardo Kola local government council Mr. Savior Manku.
The matter which had raised tension in the state capital which was
discussed at INEC Head office in Jalingo could not be resolved there.
