Supporters urged to ignore “fake” results
from AUGUSTINE OSAYANDE in Abuja, Nigeria
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE People’s Democratic Party (PDP) told supporters to disregard results posted in social media suggesting the All Progressives Congress had assumed a lead as vote results collation progressed.
PDP spokesman, Olisa Metuh, said such results reportedly posted by APC were fake.
He said the APC in its “desperation” for power aimed to ambush the electoral commission and mislead the unsuspecting public to believe it was winning.
This, Metuh said, was in furtherance of its grand plot to cause confusion and set the stage for violence when the authentic results were finally released.
“We therefore alert Nigerians to be on their guard and close ranks in resisting the APC’s plot to plunge the nation into chaos and anarchy,” he said.
“Our democracy has come to stay and the will of the people must prevail over and above the parochial ambition of a selfish few,” Metuh added.
Election results were initially due on Monday.
