The Kano chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the Presidential and National Assembly results compiled in the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The state party chairman and also the party agent at the collation centre, Rabiu Sulaiman Bichi, alleged that the figures released by INEC were tampered with during collation
Bichi told reporters at the INEC headquarters in the state that they will not accept the inflated figures of the election outcome.
His words: “We cannot accept such inflated figures and that is our stand. So we will go back and analyse the issue to know the next line of action to take.
“As you can see, the presiding officers complained of lack of use of card readers during the voting exercise of the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state coupled with over-voting.”
When asked whether the PDP will institute a legal action over the narratives, Bichi said that they shall look at the circumstances and provisions of the law and see what the law says so as to pursue their rights.
