The Peoples’ Democratic Party, says the figures currently being announced by INEC at the National Collation Centre in Abuja are contrary to original figures from polling units across the country.
National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus stated this at a press briefing in Abuja on Monday, while also rejecting the cancellation of 157, 591 votes in Nasarawa State by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
He said: “With the INEC IT server hacked by agents of the APC to manipulate results, we can with certainty state that results from the following polling units have, for example, been tampered with, “Sarkin Dawaki ward in Doma, Doka ward in Doma local government area of Nasarawa state; Agyaragin – Tofa ward 10, 000 illegal votes added to already announced results in Wurno local government area in Sokoto state.
“Additionally, violent and destructive attacks have been meted out to officials during counting at Lafia and police barracks polling units.
“I want to categorically state that our agents at the collation centres have all original results from every polling unit, in every ward, in every Local government area in Nigeria, of which the international community is well aware, implying all results currently being announced by INEC are incorrect thus unacceptable to our party and people.
“Secondly, officials of both President Buhari’s government and the All Progressive Congress APC, working with INEC officers, have tried to alter the course of history and disenfranchise our people through the cancellation and manipulation of figures for results already announced at polling units, nationwide, in local government areas where our party, the PDP, had commanding votes.
“The ruling party’s strategy has indeed been murderous, undignified, and disrespectful of the wishes of the electorate, our people and the international community who have been in solidarity with our nation as we attempt to strengthen our democracy and its institutions,” he said.
Continuing, Secondus said the PDP is worried that “in full view of the watching world, and despite efforts by our great party and its agents to adhere to every laid down provision for the 2019 general elections, the APC in collusion with INEC have taken aggressive steps, mostly through inducements, manipulation and incarcerations, using the elements of state power including the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigerian Army in particular, alongside other organizations including the Department of State Security, DSS and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to silence the voices of our long suffering people; this is disheartening, considering the terms of the peace accord, which called for impartiality and non-partisanship by members of our security organization with constitutional roles to play during this civic exercise.
According to the opposition party, its agents were subjected to untold harassment simply for pointing out some irregularities.
The PDP chairman also appealed to the leadership of INEC to remain neutral and impartial, insisting that the PDP would have course to celebrate at the end of the entire electoral process.
