This sterns from weight of the petitions filed before the electoral #tribunal by opposition candidates challenging their respective victories.
The All Progressives Congress, #APC, is challenging the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission in Akwa Ibom #State. While both the APC and Labour Party, LP, filed separate petitions against #PDP in #Delta State.
According to the APC in Akwa Ibom, the total number of votes announced by INEC exceeded the total certified accredited voters.
The Accredited voters captured by card readers for the April 11 elections in Akwa Ibom State was 437,128, but the figure declared by the state INEC office was 1,122,836, APC told the tribunal.
For Delta State election, the APC equally argued that the total number of votes announced by INEC exceeded that of the certified accredited number of voters.
According to the governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State, Olorogun O”tega Emerhor, the winner of the election, Ifeanyi #Okowa, polled 724,680 Votes, but INEC’s certified accredited number of voters was 709,700.
With the disparity in the figures presented above, there is no doubt that opposition candidates have valid arguments to buttress their suspicions that elections were rigged.
If both opposition candidates are able to prove their cases beyond doubts, then the tribunal would be left with no option other than to unseat both governors-elect.
With INEC also ruling out the possibility of having a rerun elections, the onus lies solely on the electoral tribunal to declare and order the swearing in of the legal winner of the gubernatorial polls in Akwa Ibom and Delta States.
