Femi Falana stated this in an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday, describing Binani’s declaration and her acceptance speech as a ”charade”.
Fiery lawyer and activist, Femi Falana (SAN), has said that the Adamawa State gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Aisha ‘Binani’ Dahiru’s acceptance speech confirmed that she was in on the illegal declaration.
Falana stated this in an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.
The SAN described Binani’s declaration and her acceptance speech as a ”charade”.
He said: ”With respect to the acceptance speech, it already confirmed that she was party to the charade. She has to be brought in by the police and investigated.

“How did you prepare a speech if you did not know that you were going to be declared the winner because, at that stage, the collation had not been concluded?
“The last point is the role of NTA. The NTA televised the acceptance speech. I expect the NBC to move in speedily and sanction the NTA because, at that time, collation was still ongoing.”
Recall that the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Hudu Yunusa, had declared Binani winner of the state guber election.
However, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, reversed the purported declaration of Binani as the winner of the Adamawa election by the REC.
The Commission said the action of the REC was a move to usurp the power of the Returning Officer. It further declared it null, void and of no effect.
Meanwhile, Falana has demanded that Binani be investigated by the police.
