Addressing Journalists today (Monday March 30) in Abuja, Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus gave the seven states as  Kano, Jigawa, Kaduna, Gombe, Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi States, adding that  based on concrete facts collated  by the field Agents party, the party had already petitioned the INEC through its Resident Electoral Commissioners,RECs in the affected states.

Meanwhile, the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO reiterated its claim that its candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan was winning the presidential election.

Secondus who alleged that in the seven states,  under aged were allowed to vote in contravention of the Electoral Act, also alleged that voting took place late in the night in the affected states, adding, ” In Kano and some of these states in the North, majority of voters were under-aged. Voting also took place in the night and you know that in the night rigging can take place.

“We have completed our reports from Kano state chapter.”

Secondus who declared that the conducts of the election in the affected states were characterised by underage voting,mid-night voting,voting to rig and insurgency attacks on voters in connivance with the officials of INEC .

According to him,

”we want to put the entire World on notice the evil plans of the main opposition,the All Progressive Congress,APC, in their calestine meetings of releasing unauthorised election results by the INEC to the members of the public. 

“The sole aim of this is to be misleading Nigerians and the international Community though their propaganda machinery. we believe in the rule of law and the electoral law as amended. 

“As we speak,our state chapters have submitted their petitions to the state Resident  Electoral Commissioners and their on their way to Abuja to submit similar ones at the Commission’s Headquarters to its Chairman,Professor Jega because we are being guided by law. 

“In kano state  specifically,we are all aware that voters turned out en mass to vote but regrettably,majority of them turned out to be under aged voters,we have evidence,voting also took place at night for rigging,our state chapter had already petitioned the REC about all these malpractices”. 

“In Gombe,similar thing happened,there were insurgency attacks on voters and electoral officers and people ran away for their lives  but at the end of the day  results were procured in favour of the APC,” 

“Similar scenario played out in other states mentioned earlier,in view of this,we are calling for the total cancellation of the Presidential election results in the seven states”,he declared.
