The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council (PDP PCC) on Monday raised an alarm that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is trying to manipulate the election results of Ebonyi and Imo states to enable it to meet the constitutionally required spread.
The council stated in a press conference at its campaign headquarters in Abuja where it alleged that having been defeated in both states by Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), the APC is now trying to shore up its votes in the two states by manipulating figures.
The Director, Strategic Communications of the PDP PCC, Dele Momodu, who made the claims, said the candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, can only satisfy the constitutionally required spread if his party succeeds in manipulating the two southeast states’ results.
He alleged that the ruling party is hoping to use governors of the states who are both APC members.
Momodu pointed out that Tinubu has been fatally wounded in Lagos by Obi and injured by Rabiu Kwankwaso’s New Nigeria Peoples (NNPP) in Kano State, saying that the APC flag bearer has found himself needing millions of votes he cannot muster.
He assured that with what is available to the council, the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has become the first to cross the constitutionally required threshold.
