Haruna Doguwa, the chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party in Kano State, issued a warning on Sunday, saying that the party will fight any attempts to tamper with the results of the Fagge Federal House of Representatives election.
This caution follows the Independent National Electoral Commission's announcement that it would hold additional elections in the 18 impacted polling places.
Mohammed Bello Fagge, the party's candidate for the Feggae Federal House of Representatives Seat, received 18,410 votes, according to Doguwa during an emergency conference organized by the party.
According to Doguwa, Bello received the most votes as compared to the Labour Party candidate, who received 12,729 votes, the All Progressives candidate, who received 8,194 votes, and the People's Democratic Party, which received 6,546 votes.
The Kano NNPP is calling on the president and security agencies to thwart attempts being made by some dishonest elements to collude with the Kano State Government and INEC officials to falsify the results that have been tallied.
