The All Progressives Congress, APC has rejected the Bauchi State Governorship election result where the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bala Mohammed the winner.

The APC called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to investigate reports that its Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS was compromised in many voting units in Bauchi State.

Cancellation of results

In a press statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, the party called for cancellation of results in polling units where the BVAS Machine was compromised.

The party alleged that there was cancellation of results from polling units located in the strongholds of its governorship candidate, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.

“With indisputable cases of over-voting, massive electoral fraud, thuggery, harassment, intimidation, and widespread despicable violence that marred the Bauchi State Governorship election,

“Specifically, in Alkaleri, Kirfi, Toro, Warji, Ningi and Zaki Local Government Areas of Bauchi State which recorded widespread violence, overvoting and massive rigging against the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar (Rtd.), it is perplexing that inexplicable massive figures were invented in polling units in which voting didn’t take place, and in which results were never collated.

“Extensive cancellations of polling units results in APC Candidate’s strongholds were made without valid justification, except to depress his vote count and give undue advantage to the PDP candidate, the incumbent Governor, Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed” the party said.

The APC advised the the Electoral Commission to take advantage of the section in the electoral law that gives it power to review declaration of result within 7 days.
