The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare its candidate, Prof. Olusola Kolapo Eleka as winner of last Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Wednesday said "new facts" available to the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party revealed that the original result of the election was in favour of the party’s candidate before it was allegedly altered.
"After a thorough examination of all hard facts the NWC re-confirms that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) doctored the result of the election to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
"The NWC therefore calls on the leadership of INEC to immediately correct their results, apologise to the people of Ekiti state and be ready to admit their falsifications before the tribunal so as to return our mandate which was stolen at ‘gun point’ on July 14," the party said.
