A former Governor of Delta State Emmanuel Uduaghan has called for the cancellation of the election results in Delta South held on Saturday.
Concise News understands that Uduaghan was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and was beaten by James Manager of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Delta South district.
However, Uduaghan in a petition by his lawyer noted that there was a massive rigging of the elections.
“Voting slips were hijacked and in some cases, destroyed, especially in polling units where it is perceived that the APC, head the upper level,” the petition read.
“It is pertinent to point out that these malpractices were made possible by the collaboration of INEC officials with these thugs identified as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, supporters.
“The areas where these malpractices were more brazen and massive include Burutu, Warri North, Warri South, Bomadi, Patani, Warri South-West, Isoko North and Isoko South Local Government Areas.
“It is obvious that the outcome and/or the results from the above listed local government areas if nothing is done about them, will reflect not reflect the will of people and their wish to freely elect the candidate of their choice.
“Based on the foregoing, we have our client’s instructions to call on you sir and appeal that the election in the aforementioned local government areas be cancelled.”
