Also denying the allegation raised by the opposition party, Abass said: “The call by the PDP for cancellation of election was uncalled-for because the election is still ongoing.

“INEC should ensure conclusion of the election. PDP should wait for the final result of the poll and then take legal action if not satisfied with it. That is what the law provided.

“I think PDP failed to mobilise its people that’s all.”
