RIVERS RERUN: PDP Accuses FG Of Using Army, INEC Against Them; Rejects Some Result

Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has claimed that the party contested the Saturday’s rerun elections in Rivers State against the Federal government.

According to the PDP, the election was against the Nigerian Army, the Independent National Electoral Commission as well as the All Progressives Congress.
Spokesperson for the faction of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

Adeyeye also rejected the declaration of Magnus Abe as the winner of the Rivers South-East senatorial district election.
Adeyeye said, “The result, which declared Magnus Abe of the APC winner, is an unprecedented massive manipulation of the electoral process in active connivance with the security agencies.
“The whole world knows that election did not take place in the Rivers South-East senatorial district. We, therefore, reject the victorious declaration of Abe with the fabricated results. We demand INEC to cancel the election in that constituency and conduct a fresh poll.
“We promise to avail ourselves of every opportunity to seek redress on this matter in the interest of democracy and that of the constituents who were denied their right to vote.
