PDP Lagos Chapter Rejects Governorship Results

Though APC Lagos governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode has been declared winner, even receiving a congratulatory call from PDP candidate, Jimi Agbaje, the Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP are not accepting the results.
In a statement by its Legal Adviser, Mr. Adeleke Adefala, said card readers were manipulated in areas where the APC won.

The statement, addressed to the Resident Electoral Commissioner, read,
“I, on behalf of our governorship candidate, the state assembly candidates and the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State write to bring to your attention the following issues for your immediate attention and resolution.
“Our candidates have brought to our attention that contrary to electoral rules and guidelines, the newly introduced card readers were not used in the following local governments: Epe, Babagry, Mushin, Ikorodu, Eti Osa, Alimosho, Ikeja, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Island and some parts of other local governments.

“This amounted to no proper accreditation of voters and a denouncement of the sanctity of the voting process. There were numerous complaints of front and uploading of the card readers with fictitious names before commencement of accreditation in areas where card readers were used such as Lagos Island, Ikorodu, Kosofe, Lagos Mainland and Badagry.

“We hereby demand for the suspension of the collation and release of the results pending investigation into our complaints.”
