#NigeriaDecides: Confusion at INEC as PDP blocks continuation of announcement of result

There is confusion at the INEC collation centre in Abuja as agents of the Peoples Democratic Party have blocked the continuation of the declaration of results.

One of the agents, Godsday Orubebe, a former Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, is holding on to the microphone and insisting that Chairman Attahiru Jega must not continue the declaration of results.

“Prof Jega, you cannot continue, you cannot continue,” he barked at Mr. Jega as the INEC chairman made to move ahead with proceedings.

He accused Mr. Jega of refusing to accept a petition from the the PDP protesting results from Kano, Katsina and Jigawa.

He also claimed that INEC had given the All Progressives Party advance copy of the results yet to be officially declared.

Mr. Jega strongly rejected the allegations.
