PDP lists states Buhari, APC are ‘forcing’ INEC to rig

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s men of allegedly forcing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to manipulate results in some states.

The party said it insists on the results already delivered at the polling units for the candidate of the people, Atiku Abubakar, and cautioned that Nigerians will not accept any figures except what was declared and collated from the polling units.

Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, in a statement said the party was aware that the Buhari Presidency was mounting 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 a frenzy to allocate fictitious figures for the defeated President Buhari.

It said: “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.”
