BENUE APC DENIED ME TICKET BECAUSE OF SEX - HOUSE OF REPS ASPIRANT MRS DEVAAN HANMATION CRIED OUT

HOW APC DENIED Devaan Hanmation MOM TICKET BECAUSE OF GENDER (GENDER IN APC IS A REASON FOR DEPRIVING PEOPLE WHO ARE FROM THE RIGHTFUL ZONING WITH TICKET. )AKUME AND IMPUNITY.

"KWANDE /USHONGO HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SLOT: WHO REALLY WON?

"Actually, I did. And here are the reasons why.

1. The APC House of Representatives Primaries which took place on Thursday the 4th of October 2018, were truncated by extreme violence resulting in a shootout between state security agents and armed thugs. Delegates dispersed.
2. The Ballot was not counted.
3. No winner was declared.
4. On Friday the 5th of October 2018, all 4 aspirants were in Makurdi to resolve the issue. A panel was set up to arrive at a consensus candidate in line with the party guidelines. Each aspirant was asked to vote for a fellow aspirant.
5. We voted amongst ourselves and I got 2 out of 3 votes, making me the clear winner.
6. Quite simply therefore, I, Devaan Mom, emerged the consensus candidate based on 2 out of 3 votes while the incumbent came 2nd with 1 vote in his favor.
7. The panel told us they would give us feedback the following day after more deliberations.
8. On Saturday the 6th of October when we came back, instead of being affirmed the winner, I was told there were concerns based on my sex and the fact that the senatorial candidate is also female.
9. We were then told to stay patient as we would be communicated to.
10. As I write this, nobody has reached out to me again.

This is both disappointing and disheartening.
I consulted widely
Zoning favors me absolutely
I campaigned vigorously, went round the 26 wards twice.
I bought my form.
I passed screening.
I am qualified.

But…

I may not get the ticket because of my sex? Wow.

I have resorted to putting my own side of the story out after patiently waiting for some form of formal communication from the panel. I have been met with deafening silence while my opponents put out a false narrative that they won or should be considered over and above me simply because they are male and I am female.

This should not be the face of APC in 2018.
