How INEC Helped APC In Ekiti - Witness by BrosPeter: 5:06pm On Oct 30, 2018
A petitioners’ witness on Tuesday told the Ekiti Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that votes for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were ‘deliberately’ voided by staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the July 14 Ekiti governorship election.
The witness, Omobuljo Bankole, said PDP votes were voided in Unit 009, Ward 4 of Ido-Osi Local Government Area.
Mr Bankole stated this while testifying before the tribunal, headed by Suleiman Belgore, sitting at the FCT High Court, Apo.
The petitioners, the PDP, and its candidate in the Ekiti July 14 governorship election, Olusola Kolapo, had approached the tribunal to challenge the outcome of the election.
The respondents in the suit are INEC, All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor Kayode Fayemi.
Answering a question during cross-examination by Abiodun Owonikoko (SAN), counsel to APC, Mr Bankole, stated that his party scored more than 119 votes during the election in his unit.
According to the witness, “I was there when they deliberately voided the PDP’s voters in Unit 9 (Ward 4, Ido -Osi LGA); the male polling clerk of INEC voided 27 votes,” he said.
Meanwhile, the petitioners called five witnesses on Tuesday bringing the total number of witnesses called so far to 69.

During a cross examination by INEC counsel, a witness, Yisa Ibrahim (PW66), from Ado Ekiti LGA, informed the tribunal that he was at his unit throughout the election, adding that PDP polled 362 votes, while APC

Apc knows they are doomed and the rigging next year won't have part 2.

Buhari is all in to continue that's why they aren't bothered or making any noise.

They've planned to rig it all.

Your vote next year won't count

So if they remove 50 void votes from the winning margin, where does that lead us? Sheer waste of time?

I have lost faith in the judiciary.

The petition is still ongoing. The judiciary is not to blame, they are doing their job. It is for the petitioner and the respondents to tender their testimonies and evidence before the court/tribunal.

Multiply that 50 (to say the least, assuming far more short changes occurred in other wards) across all polling units in the state and you have your answer

I doubt that the judiciary can be transparent.
They have been bought by the ruling party.

I never knew they existed. It's the common man that gets instant judgement and punished for stealing a goat or a handset. While it takes decades to bring to book the high profile criminals.
