The All Progressives Congress (APC) has rejected the governorship and State Assembly election results in the South-south states, as released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Results released so far, shows that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has won in three states of South-South: Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Delta States, while that of Rivers is yet to be concluded.

In a statement on Monday, the APC’s National Vice Chairman, South-south zone, Ntufam Hilliard Eta, said the election results did not reflect the will of the people.

“We have observed with great disappointment the ugly developments in the just concluded governorship and state House of Assembly elections held on March 9, 2019, and the subsequent release of results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for states of the South-south geopolitical zone: Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Delta States.

“We wish to categorically state that the results released by INEC are not a reflection of the wishes and wills of the people as they expressed at various polling units.

“Furthermore, in some units where the card readers failed, results were also allocated to such areas, and subsequently announced in favour of the PDP. Sadly, there are reported cases of box snatching in areas of APC strongholds, results are announced in favour of the PDP.

“It is incomprehensible that INEC could allow itself to be so used to usurp the collective mandate of the people and this is equated to a broad daylight robbery, and this is unacceptable,” Eta said.
