PDP vehemently rejects result
Meanwhile the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the result, saying that the result was not the true reflection of the votes cast on Saturday.

According to Mr. Jerry Ishaya, the PDP agent at the State Collation Centre, PDP agents in Zaria, Kabau, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Igabi, Soba, and Lere Local Government Areas revealed that card readers were not used at all in the respective LGAs.

He further accused security agents and officials of INEC of conniving to steal the mandate of the people.

“We have formally written the INEC that card readers were not used in those local government areas mentioned.

“Our agents told us how security agents overpowered them in some areas.

“The results were manipulated in collaboration with the INEC, security agents.”
