APC Deflates EU Election Report, Says Is Was 'Dodgy'


The All Progressives Congress, APC has punctured the 2019 General Election Report presented to Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, describing it as inconclusive and dodgy.


The Spokesperson for the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organization, Festus Keyamo who addressed newsmen after EU briefing on Saturday faulted the EU EOM for not coming to a conclusion in its report. He explained that although the country had over 120, 000 polling units, the EU based their reports on less than 500 units.


While stressing that incidents in few polling units could not have substantially affected the overall outcome of the poll, Keyamo said the EU must now do a detailed analysis to come to a definitive conclusion about the overall result of the election.


“The result reflects the overall wishes of Nigerians, that was the report by so many observers, if you are an observer you should come to a definitive conclusion, don’t be dodgy about it, don’t run away from that fact because we have 120,000 polling units across the country and in all their report I don’t think they discussed at most 500 polling units.


“If you observed certain anomalies, it could not have been more than 500 or 1000 polling units and if you do observe anomalies in those polling units, how does that substantially affect results coming from 120,000 polling unit?


“So it is not enough for you discuss the anomalies, they must discuss the overall results coming from the entire country and whether it did reflect the wishes of the people.


“This is what we want to know because they have problems in the US elections, there are problems in the EU and even UK elections.


“For Christ sake, we need a detailed analysis to come to a definitive conclusion about the overall result of the election,” he added.
