The Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday  rejected  the results of Saturday’s presidential  and National Assembly elections in Kano State.

The Collation Officer Prof Magaji Garba at about 4am  on Tuesday declared  President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress the  winner of the  poll after  polling  1,464,4768 votes to defeat  his main challenger Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, who  scored 391,593 votes.

The APC also dominated the National Assembly polls.

 But the   chairman of the PDP in the state  Rabiu  Bichi, who alleged that the elections were marred by multiple voting, also claimed figures were tampered with during collation.

He said, ‘’Naturally, we are unhappy because we were all hopeful that the elections would be conducted peacefully and thank God that some things went right. But many things went wrong. Part of it  was  the issue of  multiple voting, a lack of the use of the  card readers and even the intimidation  of electoral officials, who had to run for their lives.”

He added, “We cannot accept such inflated figures and that is our stand. So we will go back and analyse the issue.”
