The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded a stoppage to the announcement of result of the 2019 by the Independent National Electoral Commission ()

At a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, the Deputy Director General of the party’s presidential campaign organisation, Tanimu Turaki (SAN), demanded an immediate halt to the ongoing collation of results until data from the smart card reader accreditation at the polling units are made available to all the parties involved in the election.

He said the party has evidence of the manipulation of the card readers to rig the election in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The party specifically called for the “immediate and outright cancellation” of results as announced in YobeZamfaraNasarawa and Borno and demanded for the conduct of fresh elections in the affected states except Nasarawa where it asked for the restoration of “over 157, 000 lawful and valid votes which were unlawfully and arbitrarily cancelled by INEC”.

The party urged Nigerians to disregard the results already announced by INEC until its demands are met, and asserted that its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is the winner of the election.

Of the results announced in 28 states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), as at the time of filing this report, Buhari has won 12,061,230 votes, putting a good distance between him and Atiku who has won 8,592,340 votes.

While Buhari has won the majority of votes in 15 states, Atiku, a former vice president, has won in 13 states.

Read the PDP's full statement below:

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) demands, in line with the commitment to a transparent, free and fair election, an immediate halt to the on-going collation of results by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), until data from the smart card reader accreditation at the polling units are made available to all the parties in the election.

The PDP predicates its demand on available evidence to the effect that data from the card readers are being reconfigured to suit the manipulations, rigging and over-voting already carried out during the election in some states by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Already the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has communicated this position of our party to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

We have evidence from the smart card reader accreditation data that what is being announced by INEC has been seriously tampered with and manipulated.

In the meantime, we demand the immediate and outright cancellation of Presidential election results in Yobe, Zamfara, Nasarawa and Borno states as submitted by INEC presiding officers and ask for the conduct of fresh elections in these states.

In Yobe, the total number of votes submitted as cast was more than the number of accredited voters. Whereas the number of accredited voters was 601, 056, the total votes cast was 775, 449.

This is a clear case of over-voting which, by the provisions of the Electoral Act, renders the election null and void. In such instance, the law provides for another election on a day to be fixed by INEC.

In Zamfara state, no actual voting took place and there was no single result sheet in any polling unit in the entire state. There was an arrest in Shinkafi Local Government, where an APC member was caught thump-printing ballot papers inside his .

Results from the presiding officer from Zamfara were concocted and allocated according to the wishes of the leadership of the APC and INEC.

The PDP therefore demands the outright deletion of the results from Zamfara from INEC records and a conduct of free, fair and credible Presidential election in Zamfara state.

Also in Borno state, there was no election but a figure writing exercise and allocation of results according to the whims and caprices of the APC leaders. We also demand the outright deletion of the results from Borno from INEC records and a conduct of free, fair and credible Presidential election in Borno state.

In Nasarawa, the PDP demands the immediate restoration of our over 157, 000 lawful and valid votes which were unlawfully and arbitrarily cancelled by INEC and the announcement of the actual results from the field.

Similarly, the PDP demands an immediate restoration of our over 79, 000 valid votes which were unlawfully cancelled by INEC in Kogi state and the announcement of the authentic results inclusive of the restored 79,000 votes

In the FCT, the PDP demands the restoration of 27,000 valid votes unlawfully and arbitrarily cancelled by INEC and a declaration of the authentic result, inclusive of our restored 27,000 votes.

In Plateau, the PDP demands the immediate restoration of our over 30,000 lawful and valid votes, which were unlawfully cancelled particularly in Jos North and the declaration of the genuine results as delivered at the polling units inclusive of our 30,000 restored votes.

The PDP therefore calls on Nigerians to disregard the results until INEC provides the data from the smart card reader accreditation at the polling units, conducts fresh election in Borno, Yobe and Zamfara states as well as restore our votes in Plateau, FCT, Kogi and Nasarawa states.

The PDP maintains that from the actual votes delivered at the polling units, which we all have, Nigerians clearly and unequivocally gave their mandate to Atiku Abubakar.

    the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

The Director-General of the Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA), Clement Nze, on Monday said 13 states would witness more
flood this year.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Nze said 13 states in the country should be at alert against flood following the rise in the water levels of River Niger and River Benue

Nze listed Kebbi, Niger,Kwara, Nasarawa, Kogi, Edo, Anambra, Delta, Rivers, Bayelsa, Adamawa,Taraba and Benue as being among states to experience flooding.

He said Nigeria was on flood red alert and that the flood sighted in Niger Republic was expected to arrive the Nigerian border through Kebbi State yesterday.

According to him, this was also because of the steady rise of the River Benue owing to the local rainfall with attendant heavy inflows from the tributaries of the river.

He warned that water from six of the nine countries that make up the Niger Basin Authority was pouring into the country and could lead to severe flooding in those states.
