Paul Osuyi, Asaba

 

Former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has polled a total of 594,068 votes across the 25 local government areas of Delta State in last Saturday’s presidential election.

His rival and incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC) scored a total of 221,292 votes.

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Collation Officer for state, Prof. Seth Accra Jaja, Vice Chancellor of Federal University, Otuoke announced the results in Asaba after collating the various results from various local government areas as earlier announced by respective LGA collation officers.

Atiku won in 23 out of the 25 councils, leaving Buhari with two.

Buhari won in Ethiope East LGA where the state governorship candidate, Great Ogboru hails from; and Ughelli North LGA where incumbent Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and state APC leader, O’tega Emerhor hail from.

Chairman of the state APC campaign council and former governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan did not only lost his senatorial election for Delta South, but failed to deliver APC in his Warri North LGA.

Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu also lost his local government, Aniocha North to the PDP.

Meanwhile, the PDP won two senatorial seats with incumbent senators Peter Nwaoboshi and James Manager retaining their seats for Delta North and Delta South respectively. Similarly, incumbent Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for Delta Central also retained his seat.

While Nwaoboshi polled 186,423 votes to defeat Doris Uboh of APC with 36,360 votes to retain the seat for Delta North, Mr. Manager pulled an upset in Delta South, defeating immediate past governor of the state, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan of the APC, who was primed to win going to series of endorsements he enjoyed prior to the election.

Manager who has been in the red chamber since 2003, scored 258,812 votes while Uduaghan scored 125,776 votes.

On his part, Omo-Agege defeated Mrs. Evelyn Oboro of the PDP to retain his senatorial seat for Delta Central.

In the House of Representatives election, PDP clinched nine out of the available ten seats in the green chamber, with House Minority Leader, Leo Ogor polling 34,000 to trash Joel Onowakpor of the APC who scored 23,553 votes.

Like Manager, Ogor who represents Isoko Federal Constituency will be serving his fifth tenure in the next dispensation.

“The results are incorrect and unacceptable to our party.

JUST IN: US Expresses Concern Over Tampering Of Votes In Nigeria Elections |RN

Chris-Smith-US

by Matt Hadro

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement on the elections in Nigeria:

“Yesterday, Nigeria voted. Today, votes are being counted. I am very concerned by credible reports that the vote is being tampered with. To avoid any manipulation of the tally, it is critical that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announce without delay actual results — which are certified by party agents and observers — at each polling unit as the vote is tabulated.

“Well-placed sources report that in some states and localities — including Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, Abia — INEC commissioners are receiving enormous pressure to alter poll results. This must not be allowed to happen.

“The eyes of the United States, of Africa, and the world are upon Nigeria and INEC. I also ask Secretary Michael Pompeo to hold accountable anyone who seeks to cheat the Nigerian people — who have waited patiently — of their vote or foments violence.”
