The People’s Democratic Party PDP on Wednesday refused to sign the result sheet of the Presidential election which was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC in Abuja.
INEC declared President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress APC re-elected having won the highest votes of 15,191, 847 votes to defeat his closest rival, Atiku Abubakar of the PDP who polled 11,262,978 votes.
Buhari won in 19 states while Atiku won in 17 states and the Federal Capital Territory
PDP Agent, Osita Chidoka, left the hall at the National Collation Centre when the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu started calling on party agents to come forward to sign the result sheet.
Chidoka, who was a former Minister of Aviation, in an interview with journalists on his way out said that the party does not accept the election result as representing the valid votes of Nigerians, due to three issues it earlier raised by the party.
