The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in the National Assembly election held last Saturday in Lagos state have appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to consider their petitions against the collated results in the Lagos west and Lagos central Senatorial Districts in the state.
Speaking on the outcome of the poll, the party Senatorial candidate for Lagos west, Otunba Segun Adewale (Aeroland) and the party Senatorial candidate for Lagos central Wale Gomez, said they won the election going by the results obtained by their agents from each of the polling units in their Senatorial districts.
Adewale, who was a former Lagos state PDP chairman alleged that most of the results were altered at various levels of collations.
He stated that he was coasting home to victory in Alimosho, Agege, Ojo, Badagry LGAs before the results were altered.
He said the party has all the results from the various polling units as declared by the polling officials as well as those collated by the party agents.
“We have these results intact. What we discovered was that the results were unnecessarily delayed to give room for manipulation.
“How can we lose an election that we have won convincingly at the polling units?
“I therefore appeal to the INEC REC to go through our petition. We have sent our petition and he should go through it,” he said.
He stated further that all entreaties to collation officers at various levels of collations to fact check the results with BVAS (Bimodal Voter Accreditation System) proved abortive.
