Manipulation Can’t Overturn Labour Party’s Results In Abia – Otti

The Labour Party candidate in Abia State, Dr Alex Otti has declared that no amount of manipulation can alter the party’s victory in the state.

Otti stated this as Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) continues the verification of election results from the state.

The electoral commission has suspended the collation of governorship election results in Abia State following claims that the ruling PDP in the state attempted to rewrite the results in Obingwa Local Government to overturn the original results as already collated by INEC officials.

Otti had polled a total of 171,747 votes while Okey Ahiwe of PDP has 79,477 votes after winning five LGAs.

Otti said: “What has happened this time around is that the BVAS has demystified Obigwan Local Government in Abia State..
