BREAKING: Benue South rerun: Onjeh rejects result

Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, February 20, 2016 | 10:08:00 PM

In a press statement by the director media and publicity, of the Onjeh campaign organisation, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi stated that while the APC relied on normal accreditation their opponent relied on manipulating the system to write names and stuff ballot boxes under the cover of violence unleashed on the electorate especially in Okpokwu, Agatu and Otukpo with the full connivance of the security agencies and the INEC.

He said “The false claims by the PDP against us was the leeway to perpetrate violence and rig the results”.
“There was a very clear verifiable compromise by the security agencies as where we are leading with very high margins, the results were altered and figures concocted to destroy our lead especially in Oju where voting was re initiated by 10:30pm”.

According to the statement, the election is being rigged massively and that the Organisation and the Party totally reject the results emanating from these areas.
Ogenyi noted that the Supreme Court decision on the relevance of the use of the Card Reader in the electoral system is a major setback in the earlier gains recorded in making the system very transparent as their opponent reverted to the 1999 era where results were concocted and electoral and security agencies are induced with cash.

Reports from agents on the field says APC agents were chased out by the military where they had a very comfortable lead like Oju or where there was crisis like Agatu and Otukpo.

Ogenyi alleged that when the issues were raised by APC agents on the ground, they were told by the security agencies to go to INEC to complain.

“When they went to INEC, they were told to accept the results and go back to court. This is a clear case of manipulation and collusion between David Mark, INEC and the security agencies”.
“For a man who never went to the field to canvass for votes but relies solely on last minute manipulation of results to be assisted by electoral and security agencies is a dangerous precedent for Nigeria’s democratic system” Ogenyi added.
