The Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor attahiru Jega has debunked the claim that President Goodluck Jonathan has won 23 states, including winning 64 per cent of the votes.
The victory claim was made by the Spokesman of the Jonathan Campaign Organization, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode.
But at a press conference in Abuja today, Jega said: ”I don’t know the sources of such information (that the PDP is leading in 23 states). The results have not been collated in 23 states. Fairly very few states have actually collated. In fact, only two states have been collated…. There is the need to be careful about the information being put there by people who are clearly partisan.”
Jega counselled for caution in announcing the results, as they are still being collated.
