‘Ohere’s Victory Sealed, No Mandate to Reclaim’

The Ohere Political Vanguard has advised the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the central senatorial district of Kogi State to desist from media trial and efforts at seeking for sympathy over the just concluded general elections, stating that the victory of the Senator-elect, Engr. Abubakar Ohere was clearly won and sealed.

The political organization stated this while in a statement signed by its spokesman, Tahiru Usman Malik to a report in sections of the online media wherein the PDP claimed residents expressed confidence in retrieving the mandate.

The Ohere Political Vanguard described the report as misleading and a figment of imagination, noting that the election was fairly ran and won, with no mandate to be retrieved.

According to the group, the candidate of the PDP in the election has not come to terms with the reality of her loss, taking over the duties of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on social media.

“We make bold to state that for the first time in history of election in Kogi Central, going by the assessment of International and Local observers, the election was adjudged as free, fair, credible, with not a single violence recorded.

“It is unfortunate that since the PDP attempted militarizing the election in Kogi Central was not able to yield results, the candidate has resorted to manufacturing and manipulating figures on air for INEC to declare them winner outside an already collated result in an election freely won by the APC Senatorial Candidate.

“The attempt to claim victory on the air is to us an aberration and undemocratic. We wonder if it was that simple the way election are won on paper as postulated by the PDP candidate, there wouldn’t have been any need for contest in the first place as people would rather work towards the kind of PDP victory through mischief.

“The PDP candidate for now should have been tired of complaining in an already won contest and simply concede and to accept defeat or better still present evidence at the court rather than propaganda.

“Manufacturing and manipulating figures on the air for INEC to declare the PDP winner in a mandate freely given by the people of Kogi Central to the APC outside already collated figures is an aberration and Undemocratic, making us to wonder if that was actually the way election are won. Nobody would have contested election in the first place but rather work towards the kind of PDP victory through mischief.

“The PDP without fear or contradiction was a party that was roundly defeated in the February 25th National Assembly Election but has refused to accept defeat for the mere fact that extortion from the higher purse must be allowed to dry up, a character trait the PDP is known for.

“Certainly, that the PDP is inflicted with Pain is not out of place having been outrightly rejected can be understood owing to the quantity of dollars invested in the Kogi Central election that was for them a do or die. We however advice Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan to come to terms with the reality that the people of Kogi Central have freely and willingly given their mandate to the APC.”

The group described the Senate-elect as competent with experience in professional administration, governance and quality representation.

It assured the people of the Senatorial District that their mandate is secured with overwhelming evidence to be presented before the law when the need arises.
