INEC Awards N434million Contract To Binani’s Printing Firm

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has allegedly awarded a contract for the printing of sensitive materials to Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani's printing firm, Binani Printing Press.

According to the contract documents obtained by on Wednesday and signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Rose Oriaran-Anthony, Binani Printing Press, owned by the Adamawa State gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Aishatu Binani, was awarded N434,372,649 to print election results sheets for the 2023 general elections.

This was done despite repeated assurances by the INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu, that the integrity of the sensitive materials for the election would be ensured.

It was gathered that Binani had boasted that she would win the 2023 gubernatorial election in Adamawa State by all means.

In a leaked video, Binani who spoke in Fulfulde language was heard saying that she would clinch the governorship seat, even if by theft.

Details of the INEC contract to Binani showed that the governorship result sheets are for Jigawa, Kaduna, Kebbi, Kaduna, Kano, Zamfara and Sokoto states.

When contacted for reaction, Binani refused to take her calls.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the Binani campaign organisation, Salihu Baba Ahmed, when contacted, said, “If any contract was awarded, it is to her company, consisting of many Nigerians. And in any case, is she not eligible to be awarded contracts in this country?"
