Plans to Alter Results in the S/E will be Vehemently Resisted – Nwodo

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has condemned attempts by some influential individuals in states in the South East to manipulate and alter results of the Presidential election held in the area last Saturday to the advantage of one of the presidential candidates.

In a release issued on Sunday, Nwodo alleged that some local government and Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, officials were being coerced and enticed to change the collated figures of the election to enable the presidential candidate to score up to the mandatory twenty-five percent in the States.

Noting that the results of the elections in the states in the geopolitical zone were already in the public domain, he said any attempt to falsify them would be vehemently resisted by the people.

He called on the international and local observers to take note and warned the intending perpetrators to desist from the planned perfidious act capable of inciting violence in an otherwise peaceful exercise in the zone.
