The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to quickly announce results as collated from the polling units and declare the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, the winner of the Saturday, February 23 Presidential election.
According to report, PDP stated that its position is predicated on clear and verifiable results across the country, making it clear that Atiku Abubakar is in full lead both in the spread and the total number of votes cast.
However, in a statement signed by the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) identified as Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said that Intelligence available to it is that INEC is delaying the announcement of results following directives by the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) which are having the intention of altering the figures from the polling centres and allocate fictitious figures to President Muhammadu Buhari, majorly in the northern states.

A statement from the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan stated:
“In delaying the announcement of the results, Professor Mahmood Yakubu is allowing the APC to turn him into a villain and directly pitching him against the people. He should, therefore, extricate himself from the APC and be on the side of the people, by immediately announcing the results as already delivered at the polling units and declare, the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the winner.”
