Campaign coordinator of Taraba APC governorship candidate dies in auto crash
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Taraba State, Emmanuel Bwacha, has lost his campaign coordinator in the Karim-Lamido local government council, Abdullahi Kanti, in a car accident which occurred along Lau road on Tuesday while driving to Jalingo.
Consequently, Bwacha and the campaign council have been thrown into mourning, as most of them described Kanti’s demise as a great setback not only to the guber candidate, the campaign council, but the state chapter of the party at large.
Bwacha, in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday in Jalingo by the Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign council, Aaron Artimas, described Kanti’s death “as a personal loss.”
While praying God to grant him eternal rest, Bwacha said his campaign council “would miss a diligent politician and notable man of peace.”
Though the cause of the accident has not been revealed, Kanti was said to be alone in the vehicle.
