The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Adamawa State has rejected the result of Saturday’s governorship election in some local government areas in the state.
INEC, on Monday, announced that Saturday’s governorship election in the state was inconclusive.
According to the electoral body, the number of canceled votes was higher than the margin between the leading PDP candidate and the first runner up, APC candidate.
However, the APC National Vice Chairman, North East, Mustafa Salihu, on Monday in Yola, announced the party was rejecting the result over “irregularities”.
Salihu stressed that the polling units that INEC declared the Saturday’s governorship election inconclusive covered just one percent of polling units and urged the commission to expand its investigation to cover more areas.
He added that the party had petitioned INEC on the election process from polling units, wards, local government, and the state level but the petition was rejected.
He listed places, where irregularities took place to include; Demsa, Lamurde, Numan, Guyuk, Michika and Madagali Local Government areas.
Salihu said, “We want to bring into the notice of the public serious irregularities associated with the just-concluded governorship election. As a party, we reject this result in totality.
“Because there are evidences that voting process were compromised, in a lot of Polling Units, Card Readers were not used. There were over voting and our agents were chased away.”
