PDP asks INEC to halt collation of presidential election results
Nigeria’s opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to discontinue the announcement of the presidential election results.
“The PDP demands the immediate discontinuation of the announcement until data from the use of card readers are made available,” Kabiru Turaki, deputy director-general of the PDP presidential campaign organisation said on Tuesday evening.
Twenty-eight states have so far been announced by INEC at the national collation centre in Abuja.
PDP said votes cast it in its strongholds were cancelled, “particularly in Yobe, Nasarawa, Zamfara and Plateau.”
“The data are being reconfigured to align with the manipulations carried out in various polling units across the country.”
