The Peoples Democratic Party has refuted the report of thugs attacking Obingwa Local Government Area headquarters in Abia State.
In a statement, Barrister Charles Eseonu, PDP Agent-in-Chief, Governorship Election 2023, affirmed that there was no violence in the council even before and after March 18 governorship polls.
According to him, “there was no recorded act of violence in Obingwa LGA of Abia State before, during and after the election of March 18, 2023.
“That Party agents at Obingwa collation centre only ensured that INEC’s directive that results must be announced at units, collated at ward then local government levels and result sheets issued to agents be complied with.”
According to The Sun, Eseonu expressed shock at INEC’s attempt to bypass its recommended process.
He called on the commission to do the right thing and announce election results as collated in Obingwa.
