The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) issues a stern caution to the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the fictitious
votes being bandied from Okene and other arears to favour the All
Progressives Congress (APC).
The party demands the immediate cancellation of such allocated results,
particularly in Okene Local Government Area.
The party maintains that nobody can accept the provocative alteration of
results from polling units as well as allocation of fictitious votes,
particularly the awarding of 112, 000 votes to APC in Okene.
The PDP says the people of Kogi state have glaring evidence of
alterations of figures to reduce the vote of the PDP and allocate
imported figures to the APC.
The party therefore cautions INEC not to ever declare such mutilated
results as they will not be accepted by the people.
Our party hopes that this apparent moves to allocate fictitious results
to the APC has no bearing with the allegations in the public space that
Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC had compromised highly placed INEC
officials with huge sums of money to alter result in favour of the APC.
The PDP therefore cautions the INEC to note that any attempt to declare
the figures being bandied for the APC will be a validation of the
The only way out is for INEC to cancel and drop the fictitious figures
being bandied and declare only the results from votes cast and declared
at the respective polling units.
