Kebbi LG Elections, a monumental fraud – PDP 

by on July 18, 2017

LThe just-concluded lo­cal government elec­tion in Kebbi State which the candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) won has described as a monumen­tal fraud by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


In a reaction to the out­come of the election on Sunday in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, the PDP urged lovers of democracy and credible elections to reject it.


Through its spokesman, Alhaji Ibrahim Mayeh, the PDP said that the results announced by the electoral body were nothing but a monumental fraud and a rape on democracy.


Mayeh said that the re­sults had been pre-deter­mined by the Kebbi State Independent Electoral Commission (KESIEC). He alleged that figures were allocated to APC can­didates before the election.

The PDP spokesman said that his party had rejected the results and would take appropriate step in due course seek re­dress.


He appealed to mem­bers of the party to remain calm.


Meanwhile, KESIEC Chairman, Alhaji Aliyu Muhammad Mera, de­clared that the election was transparent, free and fair.


Mera said: “Having been satisfied by the various re­turning officers in the 21 LGAs of the state, I hereby declare these results which APC swept the chairman­ship positions with wide gap.”
