Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the afternoon hours of Tuesday, March 5, stormed Independent National Electoral Commission INEC Office to challenge the outcome of the just concluded presidential election.
Uche Secondus, PDP national chairman, led thousands of party supporters to the Abuja, Nigeria’s capital office of the electoral umpire located at Maitama around 3pm today (5th March, 2019).
With heavy security presence, the party members chanted solidarity songs to protest the result of the election.
Atiku Abubakar, the party’s candidate in the election, lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC), with over three million votes margin.
But the party said the election was militarized and the result had some irregularities.
