Instruct Collation Officers To Upload Results Immediately, Atiku Tells INEC Chairman



The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has asked the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmood Yakubu to instruct the Collation Officers for Saturday’s election to upload the results from the polling units to the INEC server immediately.

Atiku said his call become necessary in order to checkmate some governors who are trying to compromise the results at the local government collation level.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, in Abuja on Sunday.

Atiku was quoted as saying, “It will be a disservice to Nigerians and a negation to democracy for anyone to subvert the will of the people as freely expressed in their votes of yesterday,”

The statement also read, “While it is still too early to predict the final outcome of the elections, Atiku Abubakar’s early success has certainly put him in a strong position as the race enters its final stages.

“From the current figures that are available, Atiku is winning in many states in the 6 geo-political zones. We urge our members and party agents to remain steadfast and watchful”.
