The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tasked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the March 9 Gubernatorial elections in Sokoto State.
The party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, is asking INEC to save its time and resources by declaring Governor Aminu Tambuwal, its candidate, the winner of the election held on March 9.
The party said given the margin of victory recorded on the first ballot, there was no reason not to declare Tambuwal duly elected.
“Our position has not changed and we insist that His Excellency, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal should be declared winner of the governorship election in Sokoto State.
“If we go by the figure of votes collated so far, the governor has satisfied the provisions of the law because he won clearly in almost all the local governments of the states.
“What are they waiting for to declare him duly elected? We are a party that has respect for the laws of the land. So, we advise our members and supporters to remain calm because at the end of the day, victory is ours,” he said.
