Kaduna Guber Election: “Declare our candidate winner now” – PDP tells INEC

…Says, “They announced contrary results.”

by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna

People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kaduna State, has called on INEC to declare its gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Isa Ashiru, as winner of the just concluded Governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.

The party, which made the disclosure at its secretariat on Monday, alleged that the results already announced were “contrary to the available results on the field.”

Addressing a press conference, Chairman of the party, Felix Hassan Hyet, said, “I hereby call on INEC to declare Isa Ashiru of PDP as the winner of the election, using the authentic results.

“Any attempt to change the results is amounting to denying the people the right to their choice. We appreciate the people of our dear state for their support and confidence in PDP.”

While speaking, a former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, expressed “disappointment in the delay” by the electoral umpire in announcing the winner of the gubernatorial election.

He tasked Kaduna INEC to be just and fair, adding that a state like Kano – with 44 local government areas – has announced its election results, while Kaduna who has just 23 local government areas is yet to be announced. 

Shehu Sani further said that INEC should declare Isa Ashiru as the winner of the election, alleging that the APC has gone ahead to initiate new collation of two wards in Kudan LGA, where the PDP candidate is from.

“We are concerned about the delay. Is it that INEC’s postponement is tactics by the State Government to impose a dusk-to-dawn curfew, in order to deny the people to their rights?,” Shehu Sani asked.
