- Tenders additional accreditation incident forms for 9 LGAs
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has explained that it tendered the comprehensive voters registers used for the Rivers State Governorship to prove that the Rivers APC merely engaged in fallacy and propaganda when it presented its case at the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
Further, the party declared that it also tendered additional accreditation incident forms from different Local Government Areas of Rivers State to bring to the fore the valid return of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
Tendering the voters registers and accreditation incident forms used for the April 11 governorship election at the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal yesterday, counsel to the PDP, Goddy Uche (SAN ) noted that became necessary in view of the fact that both manual accreditation and card reader accreditation were used during the governorship election.
The PDP Counsel noted that the comprehensive voters registers tendered by the party indicate the formal Electoral Process during the governorship election.
The accreditation incident forms are tagged Form EC 40J.
Uche (SAN ) said that the different election materials are being tendered by the PDP to discredit false allegations contained in the Rivers State APC petition, which the petitioner failed to support with credible evidence and added that enough documentary evidences have been presented to prove their case.
“The petitioner had engaged in mere fallacy earlier in this petition. What we have done is to use documentary evidence to prove that the election was credible, peaceful and successful,” he said.
Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Suleiman Ambrosa admitted all the documents tendered by the PDP in evidence and marked them as exhibits and then adjourned the matter to Monday.
