Kogi West election: PDP give reasons why INEC must cancel results

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), leaders in Kogi West have called for the cancellation of results of the Kogi West election.

PDP Chairman, Hon. Kola Ojo, who read a communique on behalf of his colleagues, claimed that results were forged in the conduct of the election in all the local government areas of Kogi West.

The communique read: “The entire Kogi West Senatorial election results as announced by the electoral umpire ought to have been cancelled having regards to the unprecedented deployment of arms and ammunition, thugs, unholy collaboration of INEC officials, the Security Agencies and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party in the entire electoral processes in negation of the Electoral Act and INEC guidelines, is totally unacceptable and would, therefore, be challenged.”

“Furthermore, collation and entry of concocted votes were carried out at the Government House and thereafter forced on the electoral officers for the announcement at the various collation centers. This process is totally at variance with the NBC rules, guidelines, the Electoral Act and international best practices.”

“Curiously, results emanating from these illegal processes were validated and announced by the electoral body instead of being cancelled. Unfortunately, the electoral body brazenly overlooked all of these infractions in determining the areas where it announced supplementary elections will be held on Saturday, 30th November 2019.”
