Former Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC and Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside has vowed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would reject the result of Rivers East Senatorial District rerun election.
Peterside said this in a news conference in Port Harcourt that the election was rigged in favour of the PDP.
He said that information available to the party indicated that results of some local government areas in the district had not been collated.
“You are aware that elections were inconclusive in Etche Local Government Area; the results for Emohua Local Government Area have not been collated, the results for Port Harcourt City Local Government Area were partially collated.
“The APC agent was beaten at the collation centre in Port Harcourt. Without him being present, the result was announced in favour of the PDP candidate.
“Whatever result is declared for Rivers East will be ridiculing democracy; APC will not accept any of that,” he said.
Peterside said the APC would use constitutional means to resist the alleged irregularities during the election.
