The Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna state, has rejected in its entirety, the results of the governorship election in which INEC declared the incumbent governor, Nasir El-Rufai, winner of the state governorship election.
The party’s agent, Jerry Ishaya, who made this known at the State Collation Centre this morning, said the result that was announced by INEC is not the true reflection of the votes cast on Saturday.
He explained that 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 and that security agents and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission connived to steal the mandate of the people.
“We have formally written the 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.” he said
Also commenting, the Deputy Director-General of the Kaduna PDP Campaign Organisation, Danjuma Sarki, wondered how the APC scored almost the same result during the Presidential and Governorship elections when it was obvious that the turnout was low in the governorship election.
“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.” Sarki.
