INEC officials refusing to upload results in Lagos, Delta – Labour Party




Labour Party, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of refusing to upload results of the presidential elections collated in various polling units in Lagos and Delta states to the Central Server.


In a statement released Saturday evening, February 25, the National Chairman of the party, Barrister Julius Abure, said INEC officials in connivance with the security agencies, are claiming that the BVAS has suddenly developed a fault and therefore cannot function. He claimed that information from the party’s field men has it that in places like ‘Agege, Kosofe, Oshodi-Isolo, Surulere, and Ibeju Lekki,’ amongst others where results show that Labour Party won, the INEC officials claim that the BVAS suddenly developed a fault when it concerns uploading results of the presidential election.

He said;

“Information reaching me has it that in Lagos, they have refused to upload the results for the presidential election, they have uploaded that of the Senate and House of Representatives but for the presidential, they have refused. And they are using the police to drive our agents and supporters out of the place. And they said that they have firm instructions from INEC headquarters not to upload.

For example, in Kosofe, they put the collation center in a Local Government Area Headquarters. The place is surrounded by APC and people are afraid for their life. They are not uploading, they said that they have been giving instructions to insist that the BVAS is faulty. And most of the places we won, but they have refused to upload.

As I speak, APC officials are in the Yaba office of INEC negotiating with the officials. What I have said now is happening in Agege, Kosofe, Oshodi-Isolo, and Surulere, we have this situation all over. In Ibeju Lekki, our local government chairman who attempted to stop them was arrested by the police.”


However, The Labour Party chairman has reached out to INEC to ensure that only genuine and verifiable results generated from the various polling units should be uploaded.


He also called on the police to resist the lure by the politicians to mar the gains of democracy by refusing to be used to deny Nigerians their choice of leaders.


Abure said that a situation related to this is going on across the collation centers in Delta state.
