The People’s Democratic Party Delta Central senatorial candidate, Hon. Evelyn Oboro has called for the cancellation of the senatorial election held on Saturday 23rd, 2019 in District over alleged rigging and result manipulations.
Oboro in a statement signed by her Director of Media and Publicity, Mr Sunday Apah, she alleged 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.”
Recall that Independent National Electoral Commission Monday announced the APC candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as the winner of the Delta Central senatorial election polling 111, 120 Votes to defeats Oboro who had 99, 422 Votes.
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 losing after the collation of six Local Government Areas.”
While thanking her supporters for the votes, Oboro advised them to remain calm because the “temporary victory of Ovie Omo-Agege and his micro supporters will soon come to end.”
