All Progressives Congress, APC, Delta State, has said that the party pulled out of the March 6 council polls in the state because of the “absence of original elections results’ sheets and total absence of election materials in all the Local Government Areas in the State,” saying that “a juxtaposition of the “purported elections” of yesterday with the relevant laws shows that there was no elections.”

In a statement signed by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Sunday Imoniesa, the party said that a follow up statement on Sunday became necessary following up that of on Saturday that announced their withdrawal from the polls, adding that despite the warning and alarm raised some days ago, Dsiec, PDP and Govr. Okowa cheated and made a mess of the Local Government Council elections slated on Saturday.

Adding: “That is, there were elections manipulations to wit; non-provision of results’ sheets and materials for the day’s elections in most Local Government Areas of the State.”

Noting that “information available to the Party is that there are certain misconceptions about the position of the Party as it relates to the Party’s press statement of yesterday,” Delta APC said “the Party states unequivocally that the “purported elections” and/or predetermined DSIEC, PDP and Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa activity(ies) that took place yesterday was a charade, as same did not meet up with internationally acceptable standard and best practices.”

“On the other hand, the Party’s states that while it has no problem with the electioneering process of DSIEC leading up to yesterday’s elections, its position has not changed on the events of yesterday, 6th of March 2021,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, the party urged its “candidates with pre-election cases pending against DSIEC, PDP and whomsoever to pursue those pre-election cases with vigour as they bother on qualifications of candidates to stand for the elections, as they do not fall within the precinct of the earlier position (the Party press statement of yesterday) of the Party.”
