Our reporter/ Alex Otti, the Labour Party governorship candidate, widely believed to have won Saturday’s gubernatorial poll in Abia state has urged the federal government and INEC to give peace a chance and ensure that the right thing is done over the choice made by the people of the state.
Otti’s call was in response to alleged attempts being made by the state government controlled People’s Democratic Party to falsify reports in some local government areas.
In a tweet via his verified twitter handle, Otti said the local government areas involved are: Obingwa, Osisioma, Aba north and Aba south.
“From virtually all the results uploaded and released, Labour Party won by landslide.
Unfortunately the PDP government has refused to allow some of the results stand, and they are doing this with the active connivance of some compromised INEC Staff and some security agents”, Otti tweeted.
“I urge the INEC chairman to prevail on the INEC Resident electoral commissioner for Abia and other INEC staff to give peace a chance and ensure that the right thing is done”.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on the Federal government and particularly the INEC chairman to ensure that the right thing is done in Abia state. So I expect that any result that is not coming out of BIVAS accreditation will not be accepted”.
