2015-04-22 07:54

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare its candidate, Victor Ikpazu, as winner of the April 11 Governorship election in Abia.

Olisa Metuh, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, made the call at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

The spokesman alleged that the military was conniving with INEC officials to deny PDP its deserved victory in Abia, Imo and Taraba States where elections had been declared inconclusive.
