JUST IN: Angry PDP agents storm out of INEC collation centre

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agents have walked out of the collation center in Abuja ahead of the announcement of some of the presidential election results.

Senator Dino Melaye was said to have mobilized party agents to stage a walkout of the collation if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fails to abide by their bidding.

Recalls that drama ensued when Dino Melaye protested the results of Ekiti State announced earlier on Sunday.

Melaye, an agent of the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, caused a stir when he fiercely insisted that the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu must not accept the results of Ekiti, alleging that there were incidents of over voting and electoral irregularities.

Yakubu, at first, entertained Melaye’s complaints but the former lawmaker sprang up and demanded that the presentation of results by state collation officers for the presidential election (SCOPs) did not in any way translate to the declaration of results by INEC.
