Sokoto - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto State has rejected the results of last Saturday’s local government elections in the state.
The party described the exercise as a sham.
The party said the election was marred by irregularities in spite of assurance of free and fair election by Gov Amini Tambuwal and other organs handling the exercise.

The party's position was contained in a statement signed by the party's Secretary, Kabir Aliyu on Monday.
The statement also described the exercise as highly disappointing as the election was characterised by massive rigging, ballot box snatching, use of soldiers and other apparatus of state security to intimidate, arrest and molest the party’s agents, and supporters.
The party called for the cancellation of the elections and a new date announced for a fresh, free and fair election devoid of rancor.
