Election results collated in private houses, hotels –APC

The All Progressives Congress in Anambra State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of using residential houses, hotels and other secret places for collation of electoral results.
The party also said that most of the legitimate collation centres were left empty without any sign of electoral activities.

The senator representing Anambra Central and who is also seeking reelection, Dr. Chris Ngige, who spoke for members of the party in Awka on Sunday, said powerful persons in the state had held on to the results of the elections, hence the delay in announcement of electoral results.

He also said results sheets were also not made available at the centres. Ngige, who called for the outright cancellation of elections in the state, said to further compound the situation, the number of people accredited and expected to vote during Saturday’s election at different polling stations were not made public by INEC officials.

“In some places, the accreditation was done alongside the voting proper. People voted as many times as possible,” he alleged.

According to Ngige, the accreditation was done with a view to manipulating the results, adding that in most places, the fingers of voters were not inked.

He said names of voters were being written on fresh sheets of paper during the accreditation, which gave room for serious manipulation.

He said over 200 policemen were accompanied by some PDP stalwarts to some local government areas with the intention of forcing electoral officers to sign blank result sheets.

But speaking to our correspondent in an interview on Sunday, the Residential Electoral Commissioner, Anambra State, Mr. Edwin Nwatarali, said no report had been brought to him showing that fingers were not inked during the elections.

He said the commission had to move collation centres from troubled zones to other collation centres that were peaceful after a clash occurred on Sunday in one of the collation centres.

He said threats to lives of INEC personnel and materials had been reported to him, and the situation was under control.
