PDP Reacts To Cancellation Of Bauchi Supplementary Election



PDP reacts to statement on INEC server

The Bauchi State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s decision to re-collate and adopt the governorship election results from Tafawa Balewa LGA.

Speaking to newsmen on Saturday, the state chairman of the party, Hamza Akuyam, said that the committee sent by INEC did a good job by allowing the people’s will to prevail.

He said, “They have done justice. We cried foul and they set up a committee to investigate and the committee has done justice. To us, we still have confidence in INEC. What we don’t have confidence in are the police and other security agents who were compromised in all these issues.

“They knew what happened when these people went to the collation centre and vandalise, they were there. And we were surprised that even the paper that the police usually hold were also vandalised. When INEC asked them, they said they were vandalised. Can you imagine somebody going to the Police Station to vandalise the papers?

“So, we don’t have confidence in the Commissioner of Police, we don’t have confidence in the Director SSS because they are another set of M.A Abubakar.”

Naija News recall that the results from Tafawa Balewa was earlier rejected after the local government Collation Officer, Dominion Anosike said that there were intimidation and violence at the Collation Center.
