APC Rivers State Rejects Poll ResultsFeatured, Latest News, Nigeria 2015 Election Monday, March 30th, 2015
The Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rejected the results of the Saturday’s elections in the state alleging electoral frauds and manipulation.
APC stated this in a statement issued by the state commissioner for information and communication, Mrs Ibim Semenitari.
In the results announced by INEC, Jonathan won by a total vote of 1,487,075 while Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(rtd) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) followed suit with 69,238 votes while KOWA party came a distant third with 2,274 votes.
The statement reads in full:
“The Rivers State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mrs. Geisila Khan, has just engineered a rape of democracy in Rivers state. Mrs. Khan who made no pretense as to her bias for the Peoples’ Democratic part today denied the over one million APC voters in Rivers state their voice. This is not acceptable to us and we reiterate our call for the cancellation of all elections in Rivers State.
“Mrs. Khan was kept abreast of all protests of the APC by its state party agent, Barrister Achinike, William – Wobodo, whom her staff unceremoniously sent out of the collation centre on Saturday March 28th, 2015.
“Besides the seven petitions before her, written and signed by Barrister William – Wobodo, Mrs. Khan is aware that a petition from Rivers State is before the Chairman of INEC and he has announced investigations into the Rivers State case.
“The APC in Rivers State rejects in its totality the false and misleading results presented by Mrs. Khan.”
