APC Warns Against Re-writing Election Results In Favour of PDP

Published

on

Lai Mohammed-APCThe All Progressives Congress has warned against any attempt to tamper with the results of Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections, saying Nigerians have voted peacefully and massively and they know who they have voted for.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC said it has the authentic results from every polling unit where voting took place on Saturday, and will not accept anything contrary to those signed results.

The opposition party condemned the dangerous kite now being flown by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, through some of their paid media channels, seeking to appropriate unearned victories across the nation.

“We have always said we will accept the result of any free, fair and transparent elections. We stand by that avowal. However, what we will not accept – and which we are sure Nigerians themselves will reject – is any move to rewrite the results and thwart the will of the people
under any guise. We will not accept that.

“We have heard of the desperate moves to cancel the results in areas where the APC has beaten the PDP embarrassingly. Nigerians will definitely not accept that”, APC said.

The APC said it is aware of the ongoing efforts to force the Electoral and Presiding Officers in Imo State, some of whom it claimed are being picked up by the military at the moment, to rewrite the results of the elections in the state.

“We have the results from every polling unit in Imo State and we know that we have won in over 80 per cent in the presidential election. So there must be no shenanigans”, it warned.

APC also said the same attempts are being made in Sokoto, Enugu, Ekiti, Ondo, Lagos and other states, wondering why anyone will be seeking to reverse the results that are already settled.
