24 February 2019

The Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) agent at the collation centre for the Kwara central senatorial district, Hon. Isiaka Magaji has rejected the results of the election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC).

Magaji refused to sign the result sheet at the collation centre situated inside INEC's office, Ilorin.

Speaking in an interview with journalists he said " the report that I got from our agents in the four local government areas that made up Kwara central said there was massive electoral fraud in some polling units, especially in Ilorin West local government area.

The PDP agent later presented a protest letter to the returning officer for the election, Prof. Olawale Olatubosun.
