Before the declaration, a representative of NNPP urged the Returning Officer to declare the election inconclusive because of what he alleged to be over voting from some polling units.

However, the Returning Officer said there was no need for that as there is no enough evidence, to warrant such, noting that any complaints should be forwarded to INEC and Tribunal.
