As result from the Presidential election keeps trooping in, President Muhammadu Buhari‘s men have been accused by the Peoples Democratic Party, of allegedly forcing the Independent National Electoral Commission to manipulate results in some states.
The party cautioned that Nigerians will not accept any other results apart from the one declared and collated from the polling units.
The party’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement released claimed that PDP is aware that the Presidency is putting pressure on INEC and dispatching officials to change results in Rivers, Kaduna, Nasarawa, Kogi, Bauchi, Cross River, Borno, Yobe and Edo states among others, in the effort to change result for the defeated Buhari.
“Pathetically, the Buhari Presidency is also threatening the South-East state governors to change results and carve a 25% for Mr President, a scheme that has already failed.
“In Bauchi state, we are aware of the plots to move thump-printed ballot papers and fabricated results from Bauchi to Dass Local Government Area to upturn PDP’s victory in the results already delivered and announced at the polling units in the area.
“This is why the electoral officials have been delaying moving the results for final collation and announcement. If this plot fails, the APC plans to void the results for Dass.
“In spite of all these, our party assures Nigerians that the hope for a new government led by Atiku Abubakar is already manifest.
“Our agents and indeed, Nigerians, already have the results as delivered at the polling units and are not ready to accept anything to the contrary. President Buhari and the APC should therefore quietly come to terms with the fact that they have been defeated.
“The PDP, therefore, cautions INEC to respects the laws and electoral guideline by upholding and declaring results from the polling units as expressed by Nigerians on Saturday.”
