PDP deputy national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, told newsmen yesterday in Abuja that it was necessary for elections in Kano, Jigawa, Gombe, Katsina, Bauchi, Kogi and Kaduna to be cancelled.He said their call for cancellation of the election in those states was due to “irregularities” perpetrated in the states such as under-aged and midnight voting noticed in most polling units accompanied by massive rigging. He said the call for cancellation in Gombe State was because election results were sent even from areas affected by violence.Secondus said the PDP has commenced the process of filing a petition to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters in Abuja, noting that the party in these states have filed petitions at the state level.“We call for the cancellation of elections in Kano, Gombe, Jigawa, Katsina, Bauchi, Kogi and Kaduna. The cancellation is based on under-age voting, attacks by insurgents and midnight voting where rigging took place. This is to let them know we know what is going on.“Our party in these states have already filed petition to the INEC office in the states but we will file at the national headquarters in Abuja,” he said.
