The ​g​ubernatorial ​c​andidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance in Nasara​wa​ State, Labaran Maku, has called for the cancellation of elections in the state.

Mr. Maku made the call on Sunday through Nghargbu K’tso, the media director of his campaign organisation.

Mr. K’tso, at a press conference in Lafia on Friday, alleged that there was massive rigging in the election, therefore, it should be cancelled.

He said the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies connived to rig the elections.

“Massive rigging through ballot box snatching, compromised INEC and Security Agencies, informed our call for cancellation of results in Lafia, Nasarawa, Doma, Karu and Toto,” Mr. K’tso said.

​Mr. Maku came second in the election held Saturday, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, incumbent governor, Tanko Almakura, was declared winner.
