The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday issued a stern caution to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the fictitious votes being bandied from Okene and other areas to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party demanded the immediate cancellation of such allocated results, particularly in Okene Local Government Area, a statement by Kola Ologbodiyan, the party’s national publicity secretary said.
The party maintained that nobody can accept the provocative alteration of results from polling units as well as the allocation of fictitious votes, particularly the awarding of 112, 000 votes to APC in Okene.
The PDP said the people of Kogi state have glaring evidence of alterations of figures to reduce the vote of the PDP and allocate imported figures to the APC.
The party, therefore, cautioned INEC not to ever declare such mutilated results as they will not be accepted by the people.
“Our party hopes that this apparent moves to allocate fictitious results to the APC has no bearing with the allegations in the public space that Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC had compromised highly placed INEC officials with huge sums of money to alter the result in favour of the APC.
“The PDP, therefore, cautions the INEC to note that any attempt to declare the figures being bandied for the APC will be a validation of the bribery allegation.
“The only way out is for INEC to cancel and drop the fictitious figures being bandied and declare only the results from votes cast and declared at the respective polling units”.
