Nigeria’s main opposition party (PDP) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) to immediately halt the ongoing collation and announcement of results at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
Addressing journalists at the PDP secretariat annex in the nation’s capital, the Deputy Director General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Tanimu Turaki, insisted that the results as announced by INEC so far had been tampered with.
“We have evidence from the smart card reader accreditation data that what is being announced by INEC has been seriously tampered with and manipulated,” he said.
The party has also demanded outright cancellation of results from Zamfara and Borno States while demanding a restoration of votes which it claimed were allegedly cancelled from the party’s votes in Kogi and Nasarawa States.
He said, “The PDP predicates its demand on available evidence to the effect that data from the card readers are being reconfigured to suit the manipulations, rigging, and over-voting already carried out during the election in some states by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
