‘Jonathan administration planning to tamper with results,’ APC alleges

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, is planning to tamper with the results of the recently concluded general elections.

Nigeria’s Presidential and National Assembly elections were held on Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, 29.

The APC made the allegation via a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.

The statement reads:

“The information that we have received since we issued our last statement is to the effect that the administration is holding clandestine meetings with security chiefs and others with the sole aim of altering or scuttling the results which they consider to be highly embarrassing and unpalatable, using malleable RECs (resident electoral commissioners).”

The Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has however denied the allegation.

Collation of results from the elections are currently ongoing and INEC has begun announcing final results from various states.
