PDP and LP PDP and LP

The People Democratic Party has rejected the results of Lagos state that declared Peter Obi of the Labour Party as the winner of the presidential election in the state.

In an interview with the press, Tunji Shelle, the PDP agent said that the exercise conducted on February 25, is highly compromised.

According to him, the whole process was marred with violence and thugs threatening of party supporters.

He also explained that a lot of results were written without reference to the BVAS.

His words,

"The whole process had its short comings before, during and after the election, violence and threatening of other members of other parties took place and nothing was done to change it.

The integrity of the exercise is highly compromised. A lot of results were written without reference to the BVAS which is supposed to give us the actual number of votes and then transmitted accordingly and uploaded as at when necessary. Some of this procedures where not properly followed. So, the result is a makeshift one, the result is not acceptable and it is not credible."
