Dino Melaye, Kogi state governorship candidate under the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party has called out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials of tampering with the results sheet in Ogori Mangogo Local Government of Kogi State.

The Senator has also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC), of attempting to compromise the electoral process.

In a series of post shared on his Instagram page, several agents from various political parties are protesting in Ogori Mangogo. They claim that as of 9:30am, the INEC officials were leaving without commencing accreditation and voting.

Displeased by the turn-out of events, Dino Melaye urged his agents across the state to resist and protest should the INEC personnel refuse to show plain results sheet.

He said;

"There is a massive protest in Ogori/Mangogo local government in Kogi state right now. The result sheets has been filled and tampered with already and people are refusing to accredit, people are refusing to vote and they are insisting that plain result sheets must be shown to agents in accordance to electoral law.

"If they refuse to show you result sheets in all polling units across the state, don't accredit, don't vote, protest and resist it. This is democracy.

"We must protect our votes, we must protect the process, we must make sure that all the regulations are being observed and respected.

"I call on all my agents across the state that once plain result sheets are not shown to you before the commencement of accreditation, don't accredit, don't vote, resist it and protest. Record it, video it, show the faces of these compromised INEC staff and security agents and post it on all platforms of social media. We shall overcome. This election is a must win for us."
