Reactions As Dino Melaye Shares Picture Of Altered Result Sheet From A Polling Unit In Lagos

As Nigerians await the legal fireworks that are set to commence anytime soon on the controversial outcome of the just concluded presidential elections, reactions have begun trailing a social media post made by former Kogi Lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye in which he shared a picture of a result sheet from a polling unit in Lagos.

Taking to his verified Facebook page a few hours ago, Melaye, who is the chief spokesman of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, shared a picture of an altered INEC result sheet from a polling unit in the Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The picture of the result sheet shows a total of 69 votes cast for the Labour Party (LP) was reduced to 41. That of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was equally reduced from 54 votes to 6. It was also noticed that votes for the African Democratic Congress (ADC) and the Young Peoples Party (YPP) were altered from three to zero.

Captioning the picture, Senator Melaye wondered why INEC announced the result from this particular polling unit despite all the alterations.

As expected, the post has garnered quite a lot of mixed reactions from Nigerians online as many took to the comments section to air their opinions.

While some persons questioned the authenticity of the result shared by the PDP chieftain, others, however, explained that there may have genuine reasons for the alterations. Some other persons argued that the altered result may have been transferred into a master sheet at the collation center before submission to the INEC national collection center.
