Kaduna: Ignore  APC Thugs,  Fake  Returning Officer   Announced  Results Of  Chikun  LGA  Polls –  PDP 

    Chairman of PDP Chikun LGA, Prince Jonah Musa briefing newsmen on Thursday.
    Following the announcement that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  emerged winner of the Local Government Councils Polls in the 2018 in Kaduna State,  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  has reiterated that the election was truncated and the announced  result trending  on the media  is fake.

    This was expressed  during a press briefing on Thursday in Chikun LGA,  Kaduna by the PDP chairman of the area,  Prince  Jonah  Musa. 

    “We woke up this morning to an appalling news that the  All Progressives Congress (APC) in their  desperation to usurp the mandate of the people of Chikun  LGA had gone ahead to  announce election results in their favour. Hence,  the  reason for calling on you to state our position as follows.
    “That there was no election in Kujama,  Kakau,  Chikun and Nasarawa wards as it was rescheduled  for yesterday 6th  June, ” the chairman  said.
    He explained  that prior to the announcement of the results  by APC thugs,   their  party  won all the wards in the Chairmanship  Polls held on May 12.
    He explained that the party faithful are looking  forward  to  a  new date for the four wards,  which were not held on June 6.
    “We were winning the 12 wards before  the  four that were cancelled  and rescheduled  were announced, ” he said.
    He explained that APC lawmakers were intercepted by some vigilant electorate who before  then were informed  that they had planned to divert election materials.
    On the strength  of their argument,  he said  that on 12th May when elections  were first  held,   everybody was aware that seven wards declared were won by  PDP who  got over 24,000 votes and APC got about 13,000.
    “We were surprised that later,  eight wards were declared  and in the interest of peace after going  to SIECOM  to  inquire,  we accepted it, ” he said.
    On their  claims that  elections  were  not held and the alleged diversion  of materials, he said  that their  youth got a wind of what was  to come and we’re prepared.
    ”  Some of our dynamic  Youth were at the Chikun Local Government Secretariat  from  1 am on 6th June and we’re there  till evening  and  no SIECOM  official was there.
    “Elections  did not hold in the four wards,  Kujama,  Kakau,  Nasarawa  and Chikun  Wards where election was to hold.
    “The youth were vigilant  and apprehended  APC lawmakers with sensitive  materials  they were  not supposed to  be  with.
    “The first  person  was the  member  representing  Chikun  in the State   Assembly, Hon. Marcus  Yari  and  the other  was Hon.  Mamadi of the House of Representatives representing Igabi Federal  Constituency,  what brought him to Chikun.
    “We apprehended  them with  SIECOM  result  sheets  and by God’s  grace  they were not  able to escape  with  the  materials  which were  found  on them  in their  tinted vehicles.
    “As such,  the announcement  of  results  by an alleged returning  officer is part of  APC shenanigans, ” he submitted.
