By Sunday Apah, Ughelli,Senatorial Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Hon. Evelyn Oboro has called for cancellation of the senatorial election held on Saturday 23rd, 2019 in Delta Central District over alleged rigging and result manipulations.
In a statement signed by her Director of Media and Publicity, Hon. Sunday Apah, stated that the election was massively rigged in Ughelli North, Udu, Ethiope East, Ughelli South and Ethiope West Local Government Areas in favour of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
According to the statement, results were manipulated in Agbarho, Orogun, Afiesere, ward 2/6 in Ughelli North LGA, Mosogar and Jesse in Ethiope West LGA, Okpe-Olomu and Ewu in Ughelli South LGA against the wish of the people who voted massively for the PDP.
“At a point, our agents and collation officers were intimidated and prevented entry into INEC office at Ughelli just to ensure that the manipulated figures were announced in favour of Ovie Omo-Agege who was still loosing after the collation of six Local Government Areas.
While thanking her supporters for the votes, Oboro advised them to remain calm as the temporary victory of Ovie Omo-Agege and his micro supporters will soon come to end because she won the election convincingly.
