Earlier and before the final collation and announcement of the results, the People Democratic Party, PDP in the state protested the election outcome alleging that the results by the electoral umpire not real results and does not represent the will of people in the state.

The party Chairman and the deputy governorship candidate in the state, Salisu Majigiri who stated this while addressing newsmen at the INEC headquarters premises while collation of election results was ongoing threatened to take legal action to challenge the outcome of Saturday’s polls.

According him, “On behalf of the governorship candidate, Senator Yakubu Lado, myself as the deputy governor, the state house of assembly candidates and the PDP hereby rejected the result because the voters turn out during the elction on Saturday. There was low voter turnout Saturday in Katsina compare to the Presidential election. But from the figure we are receiving now, the INEC is trying to announce the figures that are not the real figures and not the will of the people.

“We have so far received 30 out of 34 local government areas. So we have compared with the result brought to us by our agents. There are so many discrepancies between the results been announced at the INEC headquarters and that with us. So we have rejected the results in totality and we are not going to accept the result that INEC is going to collate.

“So we are rejecting the result, even before the announcement by INEC. We don’t have the authority to announce our own results, but we have the figures and we will make it public after INEC announcement.

“For instance in Zango local government area, our party agents were chased away by security agents because they cannot win such areas without force. In Kaita, the result was collated in INEC office. What happened in Charanchi local government would beat your imagination.

“We are going to take constitutional measures. There is a provision in the constitution, the electoral law which when you are not satisfied with the process, you have your ways to challenge the outcome,” Majigiri however stated.
