The Nigerian incumbent leader President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and an indigene of Katsina state is reported to have polled 1,232,133 votes to beat Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, who scored 303,056 votes in the poll, this has drawn the ire of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and as such they have rejected the presidential election result released from Katsina State over alleged irregularities.
While addressing a news conference in Katsina on Tuesday, Alhaji Salisu Majigiri, the state PDP Chairman, disclosed that there were election irregularities perpetrated in some local government areas of the state during the poll and this was unacceptable to the PDP.
“Like in Kankara Local Government Area, some uncustomised result sheets are used to enter results, even though, they are from INEC, but are not the ones specifically supposed to be used for 2019 elections.
“In other places, there are over voting which we also observed, we are not satisfied with the result, that is why we rejected it and refused to sign.
“We raised objections on these issues during collation, but we were overruled.
“We will also raise these issues in Abuja during the final collation.”
