Following the completion of the Kogi State election, Dino Melaye, the PDP governorship candidate in Kogi State, has accused the INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of being collaborators with the All Progressives Congress (APC), suggesting a lack of impartiality in the electoral process. Melaye invoked a religious perspective, expressing the belief that the Almighty God will punish Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC chairman, for his alleged role in the electoral malpractices….Click Here To Continue Reading>>

Speaking in an interview with Arise TV, Melaye alleged that the election results were fabricated or manipulated before the actual voting and accreditation took place. Melaye concludes by stating that protests will be organized wherever Mahmood Yakubu is seen.

According to him, “I’ve seen different types of rigging, but this brazen daylight robbery, I’ve never seen it before. And INEC demonstrated that they are co-travelers with the APC in this business. The speed with which they accepted all the concocted results, results written even before accreditation with all the mutilation I’ve shown you, reducing the votes of the PDP openly and increasing that of the APC and people voting above accreditation, the results of the votes shown is more than the PVC collected; I’ve never seen this type before. It is appalling, and we know that the God Almighty that we serve will punish Mahmood Yakubu. He’ll not go free. We’re going to organize protests anywhere we see him.”
