The PDP in Delta state is in strong early lead in Delta Central, North, and South despite rigging allegations in Ethiope West and Ughelli axis of the state.
This is just as the PDP in the state has accused its Reps-elect in Ethiope West and INEC official of snatching ballot papers with the aid of security operatives for the opposition APC.
A quick check by TheNewsGuru.com, (TNG) across the state and through results already uploaded to INEC’s IREV indicate that PDP is in early strong lead in the three Senatorial districts of the state.
The PDP gubernatorial candidate, Sheriff Oborevwori from results on the INEC website is ahead of his main opponent who is the current Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege in 16 of the 19 local government areas that have been uploaded.
Nevertheless, feelers from ward 7 and 8 in Ethiope West where an embittered prominent politician in the state holds sway shows that massive cloning, thumb printing of ballot papers is underway to deliver ‘miracle’ results.
In the same politician’s Ethiope West, thugs in active concert with security operatives burnt houses and cars while three people were shot dead during efforts to snatch BVAS machines and ballot papers on Saturday.
Also in Ward 1 and 2 in Ughelli West, the stronghold of the opposition, the PDP alerted that that ballot boxes were snatched and thumb printing of ballot papers were said to be ongoing there.
Also, the PDP also issued a statement accusing a Reps-elect and an INEC official, Mrs. Odiurho Rhoda Oke, of colluding to rig the election in Ethiope West, Ward 7 and 8.
The duo, the statement said, snatched ballot boxes under the cover of darkness and are now falsifying results to favor the APC, despite a clear victory for the PDP.
Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza who signed the release implored Deltans to call the Electoral Officer of Ward 7 & 8 in Ethiope West, Mrs. Odiurho Rhoda Oke, and demand that she stops her alleged collusion with the Reps-elect.
“Don’t let your vote go to waste – let your voice be heard and demand justice for the people!” Another statement said.
