Abia LG Poll: PDP, state govt used electoral commission to rig- APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it will not accept the  results of local government councils election in Abia which was held recently.

The national ruling party is calling  for its cancellation.

The party’s spokesman for the state, Mr Benedict Godson made this known in a statemen

Acccording to Godson, the state ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) used the state Independent Electoral Commission to manipulate the poll

“The election was just an absurd pretence intended to create a pleasant or respectable means of re-appointing the 17 local government chairmen.

“We are not saying that people didn’t vote in all the 17 Local Government Areas (LGAs), because the Abia people voted massively for APC where election took place, but the commission did the bidding of PDP by changing the results.

“For the records, there was no election in Bende, Arochukwu, Ohafia, Ugwunagbo, Aba South and Aba North LGAs.

“We’re calling for the cancellation of all the deceitful and falsified results produced by the commission in those six LGAs,” Godson said.
