LAGOS – Nigeria’s The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State has rejected the presidential results for the state announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The party’s agent at the collation centre, Alhaji Rabiu Sulaiman-Bichi, who is also the state PDP Chairman, alleged on Tuesday that the figures were inflated.

“We cannot accept such an inflated figures and that is our stand, so we will go back and analyse the issue to know the next line of action to take.

“As you can see, the presiding officers complained of lack of use of card readers during the voting exercise of the presidential and national assembly elections in the state coupled with over-voting.

“We shall look at the circumstances and provisions of the law and see what the law says so as to pursue our rights,” he said.

The  News Agency of Nigeria reports that the PDP Chairman, however, signed and collected a copy of the result sheet. NAN
