A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Mr. Steve Worgu, has denied the allegation that he was among those who signed the Presidential result sheets distributed to Ikwerre Local government Area in Rivers State.
Mr. Worgu made this declaration yesterday in Port Harcourt, while reacting on the allegation by Rivers State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Dame Gesila Khan that he was among those who signed Presidential result sheets in Ikwerre Local government area.
He said the allegation that he signed the Presidential poll result sheet is a false and a strategy to cover up the fraudulent act that took place in Saturday’s election in Rivers State.
The APC chieftain whose name has already being published on the Punch Newspaper of Monday 2015 said he has demanded an apology from REC or he will take a legal action against her.
“I did not sign out the Presidential result sheets from my Local government as being claimed by Resident Electoral Commissioner Dame Gesila Khan who went ahead to publish my name in the Punch Newspaper.
“I am not an INEC official or one responsible in my Local government to sign those result sheets, except INEC and its agents decided to forge my signature. On this note, I am demanding apology from REC or I will take a legal action against her.”
