Ogboru’s DG asks INEC to cancel results for Burutu, Warri South-West, others

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been asked to cancel election results from Warri South West, Bomadi, Burutu and Patani Local Government Areas of Delta State over alleged rigging in the area.

Director-General of the Chief Great Ogboru Campaign Organisation of the All Progressives Congress in Delta State, Chief George Timinimi noted that the elections in the areas were massively rigged and their supporters harassed during the Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly election.

Timinimi also alleged that result sheets were not available in the few polling units and wards in the four LGAs where elections took place in last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly election in the state.

In a statement on Monday, the DG of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, further alleged that APC members and supporters were harassed and intimidated by some unnamed leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Timinimi, who accompanied his statement with some amateur videos showing some persons allegedly thumb printing, said his party would not accept outcome of the election from the four councils.

“As you can see above in Warri South West Local government area at Ogbe-Ijoh, in ward 1 of unit 005, 006, 007 and 008 in the riverine areas of the LGA the elections were characterised by massive  rigging in connivance with INEC Officials which also include thuggery, harassment and intimidation of voters and agents. 

“It should also be noted that the above vices is what is inherent in Gbaramatu ward, Oporoza ward and Isaba wards of same LGA and that of Burutu LGA not excluding BOMADI LGA and the riverine areas of Patani LGA respectively.”

He urged INEC to outrightly cancel results from the LGAs.

“Meanwhile, in all of these Units  and wards where few electoral materials were present, the result sheets for the units were missing completely. 

“I therefore call on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to outrightly cancel the elections in the aforementioned LGAs”, Timinimi added.
