The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has rejected the results of the Governorship election, which held in Kaduna State, on Saturday.
The party’s Agent, Jerry Ishaya, who stated this at the State Collation Centre, said that the result was not the true reflection of the votes cast, on Saturday.
He said that the party has rejected the results in all its entirety.
Ishaya explained that the PDP Agents in Zaria, Kabau, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Igabi, Soba, and Lere Local Government Areas of the State, have told the party Leadership that card readers were not used at all.
He accused the Security Agents and Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of connivance to steal the mandate of the people.
He said: “We have formally written to INEC, that card readers were not used in those Local Government Areas mentioned.
“Our Agents told us how Security Agents overpowered them in some areas.
“The results were manipulated, in collaboration with the INEC, Security Agents.”
Also, the Deputy Director-General of the Kaduna PDP Campaign Organisation, Danjuma Sarki, described the results as a charade.
Sarki wondered how the All Progressives Congress, APC, scored almost the same results during the Presidential and Governorship elections, when it was obvious that the turnout was low in the Governorship election.
He said: “The result was not the true reflection of votes cast. The result of the Governorship elections is more than that of the Presidential, which recorded high voters turn out.”
