Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Shortly after the announcement of the presidential election result by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), YIAGA AFRICA Watching The Vote (WTV) has revealed how the cancellation of ballots in Nasarawa State affected the election outcome for that state.
The group made the revelation on Wednesday during its result verification press briefing in Abuja.
According to YIAGA AFRICA, “It is evident that the cancellation of ballots affected the election outcome for that state, though not the national. Before the cancellation took place, PDP had a majority of the votes share in Nasarawa. After cancelation, PDP and APC had relatively equal vote shares.
It however said that the overall number ballots could not have changed the election outcome and should not call into question the accuracy of the announced results
YIAGA AFRICA therefore called on INEC to undertake a public investigation into the cancelation of ballot in Nasarawa state and to take appropriate legal action should it be discovered that any INEC staff cancelled ballots with intent to affect the election outcome.
