Alex Otti, the Labour Party candidate for governor in Abia state, has raised the alarm over alleged manipulations of original polling booth results by the People’s Democratic Party during the collation of results at some local government councils in Abia state.
Speaking to Channels Television from his country home in the Isiala Ngwa Local Government Area of the state, he urged the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, to rein in the leadership of the electoral body in Abia state so that they do not subvert the will of the people.
Alex Otti insisted, “The Labour Party won by a landslip in virtually all of the results that have been uploaded and made public.”
“Unfortunately, the PDP government has refused to accept certain election results, and they are doing so with the active complicity of compromised INEC staff and security agencies.”
“The involved local governments are Obingwa, where the outgoing governor hails from, Osisioma, Aba North, and Aba South, where we won by an overwhelming margin. Obingwa is an intriguing case because the BVAS was not used in the majority of wards in active collusion with INEC.
