Kaduna Council Polls: PDP Alledges Circunvention Of  Process

The  Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State on Saturday expressed reservations over the process of the conduct of the Council Polls in the state.Speaking through its Publicity Secretary, Mr Abraham Alberah, during a press conference, it noted some anomalies.

The party said that by the rule of the game as stated by KADSIECOM law, there would be print-out from each Electronic Voting Machine (EVM)  before commencement of elections, which would indicate no figure.

The party, however, alleged that judging from the first print-out of most  polling units, it seemed that the machine had been tampered with.It therefore called on the state’s electoral body  to do the needful as stipulated by the law.

“We call on our supporters to remain calm and go ahead with the election by casting their vote where the EVMs are working well” it saidIn her reaction, Chairman of KADSIECOM, Mrs Saratu Audu-Dikko said that one of the major challenhes faced was that some of the Presiding Officers had mistakenly tampered with the original setting of the time.

“We can not re-set the time until we get the factory cards, which are not available in all the Local Government Areas, as such, they had to wait until the machine time synchronises with the actual election time,” she explained (NAN)
