The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the alleged moves by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to pressure the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to shift the collation of results of Brass Local Government Area to Yenagoa, the State capital as unlawful.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Felix Morka, in a statement released on Sunday, said the move was an attempt to manipulate results in favour of the PDP.
The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to brazen efforts by Governor Duoye Diri and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to unlawfully and unduly pressure the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to move collation of results of Brass Local Government Area to Yenagoa, the State capital.
“Brass, remarkably, is a major stronghold of our great party where the people have voted massively for our candidate, Timipre Sylva. The move is a calculated attempt to manipulate the result of the votes in favour of the PDP.
“INEC must stand its ground and collate the votes of Brass LGA in Brass as mandated by law before moving to Yenagoa for the final state collation.
“We also vehemently condemn Governor Diri’s fervent incitement of violent protests at the Peace Park in Yenagoa. This is utterly irresponsible and a violation of his oath of office as Governor. The people of Bayelsa deserve to vote and have the results of the election declared in peace and safety. Governor Diri must stand down on his attempt to set Bayelsa state ablaze and uphold the important duty of his office as the Chief Security Officer of Bayelsa State”
