Ali in a press release issued in Abuja explained that the National Chairman of the party and National Secretary, Victor Fingesi wrote to INEC announcing his demise when they knew very well that he was and still alive, more importantly campaign vigorously for the House of Representatives election.

In his words “it is outrageous, I am yet to recover from this man’s inhumanity to man and the agony it inflicted on my family which has affected my business.

“This transactional politics, politics of deceit and politics with bitterness must stop. It is a betrayal of confidence I reposed in the ADP National chairman, Engr. Yabagi Sani, until recently the National Chairman of Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC). The need for responsible and honest leadership cannot be overemphasized.

“It is unfair, unjust and cruel for my Party National Chairman and National Secretary to conspire and forge National Population Commission’s certificate of death claiming that my death was recorded on 28th October 2022, at Nasarawa Local Government Area, Kano state same day I purportedly died.

“In the worst act of perjury, Engr. Yabagi Sani and Victor Fingesi forged an affidavit issued by the High court, Kano State deposed to by one Idi Muhammad who claimed to be my uncle that I died on 3rd July 2022, at home as a result of illness.

” The affidavit was dated 24th July 2022. I call on the Inspector General of Police and Director General, Department of State Services to thorough investigate this forgery and perjury by the ADP National Chairman and National Secretary and prosecute them to face the full weight of the law.

“This brazen impurity must be condemned by all Nigerians desirous to clean up the nation’s party politics, restore sanity and integrity in our democracy and uphold its ethos, ethics and ideals with a view to building a better society.

“An injustice to one person is injustice to all. Nigeria needs God fearing leaders not those who wish their party members and fellow compatriots dead for their insatiable political ambition and personal aggrandizement,” he said.

It was reported on November, 1st, 2022, the National Chairman of Action Democratic Party (ADP) and National Secretary, Victor Fingesi forwarded to the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) entitled, ” Notice of death candidate in Kano state and primaries for replacement “.
