PDP rejects presidential, NASS elections results
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected results of the presidential elections being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stressing that the results are “incorrect and unacceptable.”
The National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, said the party has discovered “irregularities” in results so far announced from Nasarawa state and the FCT.
The party chairman said this at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.
He also alleged that the current administration “colluded” with INEC and security agencies to manipulate results from polling units across the country.
“Our collation centres have the original results from all the polling units in the country. That is from where are going to reclaim our results,” he said.
“The results are incorrect and unacceptable to our party. Officials of the APC working with INEC have decided to alter results to affect our people. This must now be resisted by every well-meaning Nigerian.
“INEC must live up to its responsibility. They are under pressure. We have the facts and when the time comes, we begin to release them.”
Secondus added the PDP will update Nigerians “as time goes on” regarding their decisions in other states yet to be announced.
Meanwhile the legal team of the party has summoned an emergency meeting to be held on Tuesday.
The meeting is expected to discuss among other things, the next line of action following the rejection of the Presidential and national assembly results.
The notice of meeting was sent by Kabir Turaki, former minister of special duties who unsuccessfully sought the presidential ticket of the PDP for the 2019 election.
The meeting, which will hold at the Legacy House, Abuja, is expected to start at 4pm.
Turaki, a senior advocate, told invitees to “appear in person” as there will be “no representation please.”
