PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan has urged supporters of his People’s Democratic Party (PDP) not to panic amidst the releasing of results from the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) indicating that it is on course to defeat the ruling party.
On Saturday, Nigerian went to the polls to elect members of the House of Representatives, senators and a president and although official results are not yet out, the social media has been awash with all sorts of statistics. Both the PDP and the APC are claiming to have won the presidential elections, releasing figures to support their claims.
However, yesterday, President Jonathan told PDP supporters not to be carried away by figured released by the APC showing it was sweeping the polls. Presidential spokesman Dr Reuben Abati, said the results published by the APC are fake and called on the PDP faithful not to be fooled by them, saying the only confirmed result so far was the one from Ekiti State.
