The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos says results of Saturday’s council elections in the state was manipulated in favour of the ruling APC.
The party chairman, Deji Doherty, alleged in a statement that, “I seize this opportunity to state categorically that any result published by Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) is fake and unacceptable to PDP in Lagos State.
He said the PDP had observed that the ruling party did not perform as expected and decided to go all out to rig the election.
“A decision will be taken as regards our next line of action, after the collation of our results and due consultation with our lawyers.”
“We stand bold to say that if the results in a free and fair environment are not tampered with, our party would win a few chairmanship seats and a handful of councillorship seats.
Reacting to the allegations, Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos State, Seye Oladejo, told newsmen that the PDP should be ashamed of its excuses for failure at the polls.
“We cannot hold the brief of LASIEC, but the PDP should be ashamed of its age-long excuses for their perennial failure.
“The results of last Saturday’s elections were the peoples’ total rejection of the PDP as a party and their refusal to associate with unserious elements.
