In a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare its candidate, Victor Ikpazu, as winner of the April 11 Governorship election in Abia.
Speaking to newsmen, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Olisa Metuh, alleged that the military was cooperating with INEC officials to deny PDP its deserved victory in Abia, Imo and Taraba States where elections had been declared inconclusive.
In addition, Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe said there was need for INEC to declare Ikpeazu as governor-elect.
He said PDP in Abia had written a petition to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega.
Senator-elect, Mao Ohuabunwa, also said: “We have looked at INEC`s paper and copies of the results they brought and our stance is that INEC does not have any reason to declare the election inconclusive.’’
Meanwhile, INEC has fixed the Abia governorship supplementary election to hold on April 25.
