The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman in Kano State, Rabiu Bichi, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Abba Kabir, winner to avoid eruption of violence.
DAILY POST had reported that the electoral body suspended the collation of the results at the early hours of Monday due to security challenges at the Nasarawa Local Government collation center.
But reacting, the PDP chairman, while briefing newsmen on Monday, faulted the suspension of the governorship election result collation by INEC.
He said, “The election has been won by our candidate therefore the INEC should declare our candidate as the winner because we have scored the highest votes.
“We have no problems with the recalling of the Nassarawa results, but we should be declared winners with the already results at hand.
“If you declare us winner, and later you don’t get the results for Nassarawa you can go for supplementary elections, but you should just declare us winners. Final,’’ NAN quoted him as saying.
Bichi further stated that the INEC has set a bad precedence, adding that it should give the party its mandate to avoid problems.
