Kogi Election: PDP rejects election results released by INEC


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has on Sunday, November 17, 2019 rejected the election results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).

PDP has demanded the “immediate cancellation of such allocated results, particularly in Okene Local Government Area.”

A statement released by the PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that “nobody can accept the provocative alteration of results from polling units as well as the allocation of fictitious votes, particularly the awarding of 112,000 votes to APC in Okene.”

The statement read: “INEC ought not to ever declare such mutilated results as they will not be accepted by the people.”

“Our party hopes that this apparent moves to allocate fictitious results to the APC has no bearing with the allegations in the public space that Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC had compromised highly placed INEC officials with huge sums of money to alter the result in favor of the APC.”

“We, therefore, caution the INEC to note that any attempt to declare the figures being bandied for the APC will be a validation of the bribery allegation.”

“The only way out is for INEC to cancel and drop the fictitious figures being bandied and declare only the results from votes cast and declared at the respective polling units”, the statement added.
