Hon. Dachung Bagos of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Member-Elect for Jos South/Jos East federal Constituency, Plateau state has raised the alarm that results sheets for the Governorship position were already in circulation in the hands of unauthorized persons.
While speaking at a press conference in Jos on Friday, Hon. Bagos, called on the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Security Agencies to investigate the matter and ensure that only authentic materials will be supplied for the Saturday Elections.
“We are worried that the APC is trying to portray that there are impending threats of crises and anarchy in the State during the elections. We received credible information that the State government has asked for a deployment of more security to Plateau State.
“We want the federal government to disregard such request because Plateau is peaceful, and when you hear the heartbeat of a Plateau man you know that they want to vote for PDP. That’s why the governor is trying to portray that the State is under threat. When people were being killed in large numbers on daily basis why was adequate security not deployed to the state to protect lives and property?
“It is all over on social media that, Lalong has sneaked in result sheets of Governorship elections, and we don’t want to take such issues lightly. We want to warn the State government not to try what it did during the local government election, where results were being collated in various local government but they went ahead to announced winners” Bagos said.
However, the INEC Head, Voter’s Education and Publicity, Osaretin Imahiereobo debunked claims of results sheets in circulation.
“We just started the distribution of materials on Wednesday, I’m not sure if they are referring to what we distributed or something else” he added.
Hon. Dachung further urged citizens to be protective of their votes.
