The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has raised the alarm over alleged plot to swap already declared polling unit results in Enugu State.
Our correspondent reports that collation of polling units results is ongoing as voting has ended in the governorship and State House of Assembly elections held on Saturday.
In a statement made available to journalists, the Chairman of CUPP in Enugu State, Mr. Festus Okafor said there were credible reports that some agents of the ruling political party were trying to smuggle in fake result sheets.
He said, “we are raising this alarm because Enugu people will not accept anything different from the results we have from polling units.
“It is so sad that the same people who turned Enugu into a theatre of war are unrelenting in their plan to truncate the will of the people, but they won’t succeed.
“The CUPP calls on all lovers of democracy to rise up and defend the ballot. Everyone should head to the ward collation centres and then from there to the local government collation centre.
“On the part of INEC, they should save their little remaining reputation. Enugu people are not going to tolerate a repeat of what transpired during the Presidential and National Assembly elections where the people’s votes were suppressed.
“We are putting the army, the NSCDC, other security agencies and the INEC on notice. We have uncovered this plot and it must not happen,” CUPP warned.
Okafor urged Enugu people to keep hope alive as nobody can tinker with their will as freely expressed.
