The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded the cancellation of the election results of seven states.

The states in question are Kano, Jigawa, Kaduna, Gombe, Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi States, where the All Progressives Congress (APC) emerged victorious.

The PDP called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to nullify the results due to alleged electoral malpractices.

The demands were made on Monday, March 30, by Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus during a meeting with journalists in Abuja.

“In Kano and some of these states in the North, majority of voters were under-aged. Voting also took place in the night and you know that in the night rigging can take place,” Secondus said.

 “As we speak, our state chapters have submitted their petitions to the state Resident Electoral Commissioners and they’re on their way to Abuja to submit similar ones at the Commission’s Headquarters to its Chairman, Professor Jega because we are being guided by law,” he added.

Secondus alleged further that the APC had also rigged massively in the other states in question.
