Abia: PDP to challenge declaration of Alex Otti winner of guber election
The Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), its Working Committee, and the enlarged State Executive Committee decided on Tuesday to go to court to challenge the result of the Abia Governorship election, which declared the Labour Party candidate, Alex Otti, as the winner, especially in six local government areas where the BIVAS machines were not used.
This was disclosed in a statement by Hon. Elder Abraham Amah, the Abia PDP Vice Chairman and Acting State Publicity Secretary, today.
The Daily Post reports that this is coming less than a week after Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State, congratulated Otti for winning the governorship election in the state.
The statement read in part, “The Abia PDP State Working Committee, SWC, and the enlarged State Executive Committee, SEC, met today and reviewed the results after collecting all the materials used in the conduct of the just concluded guber and state HOA elections, and have decided to go to court to challenge the results of the Abia guber election, especially in six local government areas where the BIVAS machines were not used.
According to the statement, the legal department of the Abia PDP will release the details of its petitions in the next 24 hours and head to the Election Petition Tribunal to challenge the declaration of Alex Otti of the Labour Party as the winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had last week declared Otti the winner of the Abia governorship poll.
Otti, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), defeated Okey Ahiwe of the PDP to emerge the winner.
He polled 175 and 467, while Ahiwe scored 88 and 529.
