All Progressives Congress Governorship Candidate in the just concluded governorship election in Delta State, Olorogun O'tega Emerhor has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the April 11 election held in the state.

Emerhor who said this while addressing pressmen at his Warri residence, described the election purportedly won by the PDP candidate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as fraught with massive irregularities.

He said during the election there were deliberate and well orchestrated war unleashed by PDP on most voters in most part of Delta North and Central to disrupt the election, alleging that PDP strongmen and their securities were working with thugs to seize result sheets, cart away materials in APC stronghold areas.

According to Emerhor: 'The violence and commotion stated above was however designed as a smokescreen for the real fraud of cooking up figures between PDP and their INEC accomplices. These figures are allotted whimsically to the three main contending parties. While it is true that card readers were used only at voting points reserved to showcase proper election, generally the use of card readers were not only ignored but results were fabricated 100%. This happened because the state government power and machinery were brought to bear to seize INEC's machinery in other to deliver a pre-ordered voting pattern.'

The APC candidate said the results announced for most local government areas in the state were fabricated and bear no relationship to the actual voting, adding that the figures were heavily inflated and bear no relationship to the accredited figure in card readers generated.

Emerhor emphasized that the the time frame for voting coupled with the heavy downpour and other logistics involved, there was NP way such figures can be generated.

He added that allocation of votes to the parties was a deliberate attempt to put Labour at 2nd position in other to portray as a weak party in the state.
