Mr Salihu Adamu Musa, INEC Electoral Officer in Bokkos Local Government of Plateau State on Monday apologised over the “shameful” behaviour of the Returning Officer deployed to the area.
Musa was responding to a question raised by APC Collation Officer in Pankshin, Mr Emmanuel Bok, who sought to know why he (Musa), was declaring the results of elections for Bokkos, instead of the Returning Officer, as stipulated by law.
NAN reports that Musa, told the party agents, observers and INEC officials that the Returning Officer, a university lecturer, was drunk on Sunday and was sacked when he could not perform his duty.
“The Returning Officer’s attitude was appalling; he was drunk and couldn’t do anything at all.
“I took over the job based on instructions from the INEC headquarters in Jos,” Musa explained.
Musa apologised to the election officials on behalf of the electoral body and promised that the situation would not repeat itself.
Bok, who thanked Musa for the explanation, said that he had intended to reject the result because they were not presented by the officer designated to do so.
“If not for the explanation you gave to us, I would not have accepted the results until we see the Returning Officer.
“But, if that was what happened, then it is very unfortunate and bad for us in our journey toward deepening our democracy,” he said.
In his reaction, Mr Mason Mahli, PDP Collation Officer in the local government, appealed to INEC to always ensure that only reputable people were recruited to assist it in such crucial assignments.
“INEC must always look for credible persons for serious national assignments like this. Electoral duties are sacred assignments that must be handled seriously and with utter commitment,” he stated.
Atiku Abubakar has won Ondo State, the eight officially declared presidential election result by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
In the result announced by the returning officer, Prof. Kayode S, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party got 275,901 votes, while President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress polled 241,769 votes.
This evening, President Muhammadu Buhari visited his campaign headquarters in Abuja where he received updates on the performance of APC in the Presidential Elections.

A 38-year-old Islamic cleric identified as AbdulLateef Mustapha, has been arrested for allegedly defiling a six-year-old girl in his single room apartment in Bariga, Lagos State.
The suspect lured the girl into his room when his wife had travelled out of the state for a function on February 16, at Mojoyinola Street, Bariga.
The victim later told an elderly woman about the incident and the woman raised the alarm and brought it to the attention of a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Child Protection Network.
The Coordinator of Child Protection Network, Somolu Branch, Mr. Toyin Okanlawon, said: “Initially, when the suspect was arrested by policemen from Bariga Division, he denied the allegation.
He said how can he sleep with her wife’s cousin? But when the girl was brought before him, it was then he opened up that he only slept with her thrice.
When the girl was taken to the hospital, it was confirmed she was defiled and she had also being infected with Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) and her bladder had been ruptured which made her to be bedwetting whenever she sleeps.” .
Some of the friends of the Islamic cleric berated him but were said to have pleaded with the DPO to pardon him. His wife also reportedly begged for mercy, saying that they would go home and resolve it amicably.
But the DPO was said to have told the suspect’s wife and friends that there was nothing he could do. According to the DPO, the matter is a state case which no one should toy with.
The US Embassy in Nigeria has reacted to the Nigeria elections which commenced on Saturday with the presidential election and National Assembly elections.
Congratulating the tens of millions of Nigerians who voted to choose their leaders, the US Embassy stated that the election was peaceful despite a few violence recorded.
Below is a statement the released by the US Embassy on the Nigeria elections.
I congratulate the tens of millions of Nigerians who stood patiently in long lines to vote this week and the hundreds of thousands who worked together with INEC to conduct the elections. As noted by many observer groups in their preliminary reports, this election was predominantly peaceful, and it was proof of the Nigerian people’s resolute commitment to choose their leaders. The peaceful achievement of millions was shadowed by the violence of a few. We extend our deepest sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives, and we urge all candidates to honor the Peace Accord they signed. All should convince those who support them to refrain from using force or violence to interfere with INEC. No one should break the law by announcing results before INEC does, or break the peace by claiming victory before the results are final. Everyone has a common interest in showing patience as INEC collates and announces the election results.
The Election returning officer in Orlu, Imo state has been exposed to be apart of an intended manipulation in the COLLATION of election results in Orlu Senatorial zone, to discredit the success of Rochas Okoroacha and entire electoral process.
It was revealed that the election officer received a call from Abuja earlier during the exercise telling him to delay the announcement of APC candidate, Rochas Okorocha as winner of the Orlu Zone Senatorial District.
According to reports, the electoral officer in charge of Orlu Zone Senatorial district, who happens to be an inlaw to the PDP candidate, was to disappear To Owerri with election result papers so as to manipulate the results in favour of the People Democratic Party Candidate.
It was also revealed that the eventual disappearance and framed kidnap was an orchestrated plan to accuse the All Progressive Congress Candidate for masterminding the operations, so as establish a platform for arguments which may lead to the discrediting or cancellation of the elections in Orlu Senatorial zone.
An election observer showed that the plot was aimed at manipulating the elections because all indications had already proved that the PDP candidate was loosing, so they resorted to all manner of unscrupulous engagements to make the elections look incredible.
Unfortunately, the plot was unsuccessful and a post evaluation of voters participation have also explicitly shown that their interest was in the All Progressive Congress Candidate, Governor Rochas Okoroacha.

Director-General of the Kwara State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organisation, Prof. Abubakar Sulaiman, has described as outright falsehood a report credited to him that the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has conceded defeat in last Saturday’s Kwara central senatorial election.
Sulaiman, in a statement, said he had neither spoken with anyone nor issued a statement on the position of Saraki and the PDP on the outcome of the National Assembly elections in the state.
He noted: “If anything, I align myself with the position of the PDP’s agent at the collation centre for Kwara central senatorial election, Hon. Isiaka Magaji that we noted that the election was characterized by electoral malpractices in some polling units across the four local government areas in the district.
“Hon. Magaji made it known to the INEC returning officer in the district, Professor Oluwole Olatunbosun, that PDP agents at each of the four local government areas of Kwara Central senatorial district discovered massive fraud in the collation of results at the local government areas.
“Meanwhile, we are still studying the outcome of last Saturday’s elections in the state and we shall make our position known soon.
“We use this opportunity to call on our members and supporters to remain calm and maintain peace, law and order.”
The elections for Kogi East Senatorial District and Dekina/Bassa Federal Constituency have been declared inconclusive due to widespread violence, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said on Monday.
Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, INEC Returning Officer for the senatorial election, who made the announcement at the collation centre in Idah, said that the elections did not hold in 129 polling units across the district.
Ajayi said that some polling unit elections were canceled as he announced that scored APC: 113,772 votes; PDP: 69,131 and ADC, 30,696 votes.
According to him, report from Bassa Local Government Area revealed that “a registration area with the name Mozum, which has 12 polling units refused to vote.”
Ajayi said that a new date for the re-run of the polls would be announced after necessary arrangements were made.
On Saturday, the elections did not hold in four units in Anyigba, Dekina Local Government, as gun wielding hoodlums invaded the polling units in Ajetachi, Etiaja, Abuja and CMML Primary School unit 005.
In Ajetachi a student of Kogi State University, Daniel Usman, on the queue to vote was gunned down by the hoodlums who operated from a Toyota Sienna bus as they invaded the polling unit.
In Igalamela-Odolu Local Government Area with 65,129 registered voters and 16,543 accredited, elections in four polling units were cancelled within Ofuloko which has 1,145 registered voters.
The local government also witnessed violent activities in Odolu town as suspected thugs, also in a Sienna bus, shot one Adebayo Adebunmi as they kidnapped Mr Friday Sani, the member representing Igalamela-Odolu constituency at the state House of Assembly.
In Bassa Local Government, out of 58,892 registered voters, 19,587 were accredited to vote: elections in nine polling units with 6,068 voters were cancelled while elections did not take place in some of the units.
The results are trickling in, momentum is building, the pressure is piling up and in the next few hours, the president Of Nigeria for the next four years will be known.
Several political experts have given Buhari the “heads up” to win the elections. Why? One, he’s the incumbent, APC currently controls 23 states in the federation and lastly, we don’t trust Atiku, his main challenger having been part of the dreaded PDP administration that ruled the country from 1999-2007.
But let’s think it this way, Is there any way ahead with Buhari leading? Buhari might be 77 years old but he’s battling health issues that might hamper him from ruling this country successfully.
Secondly, there were little changes during the first four years. APC promised several things while coming on board but so far they’ve failed to accomplish those promises. Yes, there are jobs mainly through N-Power, but are they well paying jobs? Has the issue of electricity been resolved? No, some of us in some remote areas haven’t had light since Jan 1.
What of Security especially in the northern states where there are thousands of internally displaced people. Yet, the Buhari administration keeps preaching the gospel of Next level.
Let’s be honest, the question now is ￼
Can Buhari Take Us To The Next Level If He Eventually Wins?
Is Buhari The Chosen One To Lead Us To The Promise Land?
The Lagos state police command has dispelled rumors of area boys attacking Igbo traders in Oshodi and claimed it is false news that should be disregarded.
Reports were rife online earlier today that some hoodlums in Oshodi were attacking Igbo traders in Oshodi and stopping them from opening their shops.
Reports of area boys attacking Igbo traders in Oshodi false – Police
Chike Oti, the Lagos state Police command spokesperson, denied such attack in a statement released this afternoon.
Read the statement below
Attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to the news making the rounds on the internet to the effect that a group of boys popularly called the ‘Area boys’ are attacking Igbo traders at Oshodi, preventing them from opening their shops.
The Command wishes to debunk the rumour in its entirety as nothing could be further from the truth.
Although the Command received ditress calls from concerned Nigerians whose apprehensions were understandably heightened by disturbing rumours emanating from some social media platforms, the Command swiftly and massively deployed its personnel drawn from various units to Oshodi and environs to assuage the feelings of residents and further assure Lagosians of its readiness to decisively deal with any person or group of persons who attempts to breach the public peace.
The Commisioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, commended Lagosians for conducting themselves in a peaceful and orderly manner during the last Saturday Presidential and National Assembly Elections. The Police with support of other Sister security agencies worked round the clock to ensure that the process was generally peaceful.
In order to sustain the peaceful atmosphere, the Command will maintain a high level of Police presence in all parts of the state with emphasis on crime prone areas.
Those celebrating should do that with modesty while those unhappy with the results have the privilege of adhering with laid down procedures of addressing their grievances as provided by the Electoral Act in the Tribunal. The Command has made adequate arrangements to secure the venues of the Election Tribunals in the State.
The Command however, warns criminally minded people and disgruntled elements to steer clear of the state or be prepared to contend with security forces in the state.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that under an All Progressives Congress, APC, dispensation, Feb. 23rd of every year will be observed as the ‘Day of Liberation’ by the people of Kwara.
”I want to ask the incoming Governor of our state to, immediately he is sworn in on 29 May 2019, to declare Feb. 23rd (the date of the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections) of every year as the ‘Day of Liberation’ for Kwara State,” the Minister, who is also the APC leader in the state, said at a press conference in Ilorin on
He thanked God and the people of Kwara for the ‘clean sweep’ which the party achieved in last Saturday’s elections in the state, saying the party won the match against the PDP 10-0 (1-0 for President, 3-0 for Senate and 6-0 for House of Representatives).
”With the outcome of last Saturday’s elections, I can now conveniently say that KWARA IS FREE! Free from a choking and pauperizing political hegemony of a self-imposed dynasty! Never again will Kwarans be treated like slaves in their own land. Enough is Enough. O To Ge!” Mr. Mohammed said.
He said no single individual deserves credit for the APC’s massive victory in the elections, adding that the credit for the victory goes to the good people of Kwara.
The Minister noted that after being galvanized by ”perhaps the most impactful, three-word political slogan ever in the history of party politics in this land”, Kwarans have confirmed the saying that the power of the people is much stronger the people in power.
He also said that with the APC’s victory in last Saturday’s elections, the ‘Berlin Wall’ of Kwara politics has cracked further, and will finally crumble on March 9th, when the state votes in a new Governor and members of the State House of Assembly.
Alhaji Mohammed said Saturday’s election in the state was free, fair and peaceful, noting: ”Let me put on the record that the victory in Kwara was achieved in the sweetest way – The election was conducted in an atmosphere of peace and security. Not a single shot was fired throughout Kwara.
“No one snatched ballot box. it was an atmosphere of conviviality. It was a sharp departure from what used to be in the state.”
He thanked all the APC members and supporters across the state, as well as all the leaders of the party at all levels
The Minister, however, enjoined them to return to the drawing board in order to correct whatever lapses they may have noticed in last Saturday’s election, with a view to voting massively for the party’s Governorship and House of Assembly candidates.
The press conference was attended by the Kwara APC Chairman, Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa; the party’s governorship candidate, Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman; the Senators-elect and House of Representatives-elect and other leaders of the party.
PDP has rejected the results of last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections being announced by INEC.
The party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who addressed a press conference in Abuja, described the figures being announced by INEC as incorrect and totally unacceptable.
He alleged that the current administration “colluded” with INEC and security agencies to manipulate results from polling units across the country.
“Our collation centres have the original results from all the polling units in the country. That is from where are going to reclaim our results,” he said.
“The results are incorrect and unacceptable to our party. Officials of the APC working with INEC have decided to alter results to affect our people. This must now be resisted by every well-meaning Nigerian.
INEC must live up to its responsibility. They are under pressure. We have the facts and when the time comes, we begin to release them.”
Secondus added the PDP will update Nigerians “as time goes on” regarding their decisions in other states yet to be announced.
