Nasarawa guber: Opposition resorting to media trial – Group

A group under the aegis of the Nasarawa for Peace Initiative (NPI), Thursday, frowned at the resort to media trial by opposition elements in the state to vent their anger over their loss at the last governorship election in Nasarawa state

The group described the move as provocative and undemocratic.

The group in a press statement signed by its President, Abdulkareem Anas Abimuku, condemned what it referred to as “media trial” of a matter, which is already before the governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Lafia.

They specifically referred to a story on the front page of the Nigerian Pilot of June 15, 2023, with the title: “Nasarawa guber manipulated”, attributed to a group under the aegis of the CivicHive.

The story quoted alleged discrepancies in the result of the governorship election uploaded by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on its server and those the commission declared.

According to the initiative, it had no problem with any organisation, sponsored or otherwise, critiquing the process and outcome of the governorship election, but that the timing of the CivicHive intervention and the manner the Nigerian Pilot handled the story was suspect.
