The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue State has rejected the outcome of the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state on February 25, 2023.

The acting chairman of the party in the state, Isaac Mffo, at a press conference on Friday in Makurdi, also said the party wanted an outright cancellation of the results.

Mffo said the party had, shortly after the said elections, mandated its legal department to study reports received from its agents who had been deployed to the over 5,000 polling units across the state.

He added that after due consideration of the findings of the legal department, the PDP observed that the process of conducting both the presidential and National Assembly elections in Benue State did not conform with the standards stipulated in the enabling laws for the exercise.

The PDP chairman said the process of the election violated the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 and did not comply with the mandatory transmission of election results electronically from the polling units to the INEC server, among others serially flouted.

Meanwhile, the PDP also debunked rumours flying over the social media in the past 24 hours that its governorship candidate, Titus Uba, an engineer, had stepped down from the March 11 gubernatorial election.
