By Friday Idachaba, Lokoja

Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Dekina/Bassa Federal Constituency in the Presidential/National Assembly Elections, Hon. Usman Austin Okai, has rejected the result on the ground of wanton irregularities.

Okai who disclosed this on Sunday in Anyigba, said the exercise was replete with wanton irregularities in most Wards in Dekina Local Government Area and therefore, requested INEC to cancel the results and order a rerun.

He alleged that All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs attacked the Polling Units, carted away polling materials and in some cases, made away or destroyed boxes with thumb-printed ballot papers, desrupted the voting process in various wards.

He enumerated the wards to include Odu award one and Two, Anyigba ward, Egume ward, Dekina Ward, Oganenigu ward and Abocho ward.

According to the PDP House of Representatives candidate, to make matters worse, some electoral officers and security officers supervised some groups of people who thumb printed for APC unhindered.

”I hereby reject the cooked results offline by APC without relationship with BVAS Device input.

”INEC should suspend announcement of results in the affected areas until fresh election is conducted” Okai said.
