Port Harcourt - The People Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State on Wednesday accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of forging records of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), reports New Telegraph.
The party stated that the APC plans to tender the fake reports before the state’s electoral tribunal sitting in Abuja.
The state chairman of the party, Felix Obuah, who made the allegation in a statement, noted that the production of the fake reports was carried out by a syndicate of corrupt personnel in the election monitoring unit of INEC in the state.

He called on security operatives to immediately arrest those involved in the forgery.

There is no change at the top of the September edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, with Argentina continuing to lead the way ahead of Belgium (2nd, unchanged) and Germany (3rd, unchanged).
Chile (8th, up 2) are the only team to have made significant movement in the top ten, and they are now in their highest-ever position since the revision of the global ladder in 2006. England (10th, down 2), however, have fallen two places, whereas both Austria (13th, up 1) and Congo (42nd, up 1) are in their best positions since 1993.
The following teams have also climbed at least five places: Georgia (147th, up 7), Panama (59th, up 6), Cuba (113th, up 6), the Dominican Republic (123rd, up 6), Armenia (83rd, up 5) and Nicaragua (139th, up 5). Three teams – Rwanda (78th, up 13), Guatemala (98th, up 10) and Fiji (181st, up 17) – have even made gains of at least ten places.
The composition of the top 50 for September 2015 also shows precious little change, with Egypt (49th, up 3) the only newcomer in this group at the expense of Republic of Ireland (51st, down 1) and Cape Verde Islands (56th, down 6), who have both dropped out of last month’s ‘top 51′. The regional composition of the top 50 now looks as follows: UEFA: 30 teams (down 1); CAF: 8; CONMEBOL: 8; CONCACAF: 3; AFC: 1; OFC: 0.
A total of 15 new international ‘A’ matches have been taken into account for this edition of the ranking, all of them friendly matches in the CONCACAF (1 match), Asia (10), Africa (2) or Oceania (2) zones.
