The candidate of the Peoples Democratic party ( PDP) in the Saturday governorship election in Kogi State, Engr.Musa Wada has described the election as a sham.
Wada who spoke at a press conference in Lokoja on Sunday with his running mate, Sam Aro said the election was marred by violence, rigging and intimidation of voters by security agencies adding that the outcome did not reflect the wishes of the people.
The PDP candidate called on his supporters to remain calm as efforts are being made to consult his lawyers for the next line of action.
“ Imagine Okene LGA which used to return 40,000 votes in the past elections suddenly brought out 112,000 votes while her neighbour Okehi also brought in 64,000, the figures that will be more than the rest local governments in the state.
“It is the insincerity of the APC that has made the whole process a sham. It is not about Wada but of the suffering masses of the state. I’m pained for the people to continue to suffer for another four years.
“ On whether I will get justice, it is a common knowledge about how all the institutions have been bastardised by the APC government. However, I have to exhaust all legal means to get redress. Look at how the results were written by the agents of government and you can see that Lokoja, the state capital which was agog yesterday is a shadow of its self as nobody is celebrating.
“The results are not the true representation of what happened on the field, figures are just being allocated. Our aim to contest is to effect positive change which the people massively gave us their votes before the government decided to kill the joy of the people,” he said.
