The party made the allegation in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Friday, February 22, in Abuja. Ologbondiyan said that intelligence at PDP’s disposal showed that certain compromised INEC officials were working with agents of All Progressives (APC) to hold back the materials to rig results for ÀPC on Sunday, February 24, in the affected states. “For instance, in Abia state, no collation forms and result sheets have been received for the Senatorial elections, while no result sheets for all the elections have been received in Delta and various other states. “Also in Kano state only 105 Senate result sheets have been received in Garko local government area instead of 144 .
