The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kebbi State has rejected the results of the just concluded Local Government election held on Oct. 26, as announced by the Kebbi State Independent Commission (KSIEC).
The PDP Chairman in the state, Mallam Haruna Saidu, at a press briefing on Sunday in Birnin Kebbi, disagreed that the results announced by the commission was true reflection and outcome of the election collated earlier at the various polling units.
”I hereby declare that the PDP has not only condemned the recent elections but totally rejected results of the fraudulent elections”.
”The local government election results announced by KSIEC are incorrect and unacceptable to the party and people of Kebbi,” he said.
According to Saidu in his press briefing, the PDP had defeated APC in the chairmanship election in some local government such as:Argungu, Zuru, Augie, Aliero, Jega, Sakaba and Gwandu local government areas; the party had also won over 40 councillorship seats as against the six declared by KSIEC.
He noted that the KSIEC took five days to announce the “stage managed” results of the election, which he claimed was also marred by violence and fraudulent practices.
”We have concluded all arrangements to go to election tribunal to seek for justice and we shall not relent in fighting this cause to it logical conclusion.
“I therefore appeal to all members, loyalists and electorates in general to remain calm as the party would leave no stone unturned in ensuring justice prevails,” the chairman said
