The Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on has alleged that there was massive rigging in the just concluded presidential and national assembly elections which was held in the state on February 23.

The party is asking the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancelled the election due to the alleged rigging.

In a statement signed and made available to newsmen by the Director General (DG), Delta State APC Campaign Council/Great Ogboru Campaign Organisation, Hon. Timinimi George, the party called for INEC to cancelled results from all the troubled local government area in the state.

The statement reads: “There was no election in the riverine areas of Delta South. What happened was daylight robbery and a shameless effrontery on our nascent democracy.

The PDP leadership in the state largely compromised the military and police operatives deployed by authorities to ensure a free and fair elections.

“In Delta South, in the riverine areas of Burutu, Bomadi and Patani LGAs, the PDP leaders hijacked ballot papers and thumb printed massively in favour of their party and candidates.

“The venue of their thump printing is like a massive polling centre with many men and women aggressively carrying out this criminal act . I have enough video to buttress what I am saying.

“In Warri south west local government area at Ogbe-Ijoh, in ward 1 of unit 005, 006, 007 and 008 in the riverine areas of the LGA, elections were characterised by massive rigging in connivance with INEC officials.

“There were also hellish thuggery, harassment and intimidation of voters and agents. These criminal acts were also awfully manifest in Gbaramatu, Oporoza , and Isaba wards of same LGA.

Burutu and BOMADI LGAs and the Riverine areas of Patani LGA also shared in the barbaric and mindless rigging with the attendant violence.

Tragically, in the few Units and Wards where few electoral materials were present, the result sheets for the units were missing completely. I therefore call on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to outrightly cancel the elections in the aforementioned LGAs.”

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, rejected the result of the election won by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku, who had kept mute since Monday, February 25, when the results showed that he was going to be the loser, knocked the election as a sham.

The former vice president said if he had lost in a free and fair election, he would have called the victor within seconds of being aware of his victory to offer not just his congratulations.
