APC raises alarm over delayed results in South East, South South

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said the delay in releasing the results of last weekend’s elections in the South-East and the South-South gives room for concern, given that results are streaming in from other parts of the country.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said apart from Rivers and Akwa Ibom, where everyone knows what the situation is, there has been nothing but silence from the remaining states as far as the results are concerned.

It said many concerned Nigerians have called the party to express their concern over the delay, and to share their concerns on whether something sinister is behind the palpable silence.

”The fact that most of the South-East and the South-South resorted to manual accreditation instead of being patient for the card readers has raised real fears on the possible manipulation of the results. It is common knowledge that manual accreditation makes the voting process more susceptible to rigging and manipulation,” APC said.

The party described as very curious the fact that the card readers largely functioned well in other parts of the country, except in the South-East and the South-South, wondering whether this was a mere coincidence.

”Also, credible reports emanating from most of the South-East and the South-South indicate that APC agents have either been harassed, intimidated or chased away from results collation centres, the same treatment they (APC agents) have been subjected to in Adamawa and Taraba States.

”Against this background, we are demanding that our agents in all the affected states be given unfettered access to the result collation centres, and that they must also be allowed to scrutinize any result emanating from there for it to be credible,” it said.

APC renewed its earlier warning that no one should circumvent the will of the people for whatever reason and that only the authentic results of the elections will be acceptable to Nigerians.

The party appealed to its concerned members and supporters to be calm and to continue to eschew violence, assuring that in the end, the will of the good people of Nigeria – which they have freely expressed by turning out in large numbers to exercise their franchise – will prevail.

    We are watching them, the shameless president of ijaw opened the door of fraud when he dramatized the orchestrated conspiracy agaisnt the use of card readers by faking that the the card reader was faulthy in his accreditation attempts shows how low a numskull like him can go. but above all this ,they can never declare the rejected mugu as the winner ,because everyone with clear sight ,senses and conscience knows that Buhari is the most desired and voted for.

    I thought it was a bit odd that Jonathan & mama put suffered from the card readers 🙂 these guys think we’re fools. There’s a given rule – those looking for trouble tend to find it. Father Mbaka has warned, the head of the snake biting the north east could swish its tail against the south east (and by extension south south). Those planning things may well find they’ve started something that would consume them as it would soon spiral out of control. The card readers are working. Those rejected were those with dodgy cards. Many Igbos living in the east chose to stay at home for safety reasons. When the stories of what has been happening the past few days start to trickle out, people would be shocked.

    Loosing can be painful.I however remember hearing when speaking at grand finale of his electioneering campaign in Abuja, Buhari said the 2011 campaign was significant for him because
    it is an election in which more unambigously than the previous two,
    “2003 and 2007, our victory is assured as evidenced by the unprecedented
    turnout by people and spontaneous popular acclaim all over the
    country.”

    “This campaign is the third and last one for me since
    after it I will not present myself again for election into the office of
    the president,” Buhari said.

    A resounding Amen was said amongst many Nigerians.The Amen was heard,received and registered in heaven.

    BUHARI BROKE his COVENANT with Allah.

    There’s no perfect election anywhere in the world. I can confidently announce that senile, illiterate certificate forger, perjurer, coup plotter, Islamic extremist and pedophile Buhari has lost yet again. Fail Buhari!! Sai baba barawo. Sege danyiska. APC and its supporters are at liberty to drink hemlock if they can’t live with a Jonathan win. Jonathan has won and there’s nothing anyone can do to change that.

    • Roli Oguntoyinbo

      Goodluck to you and Jonathan. Just don’t don’t rub us with more……………………….. Hopefully, the second chance would be enuff either to loot more or to change.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        Things have changed o! Buhari has manufactured 2m votes in Kano, 1.5m votes in Katsina and 1.1m votes in Jigawa!!!! In addition to boys and girls (under-age), cows and rams must have voted in the north.
