Sen. Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate for governor of Kogi State, has claimed that all polling places in the state’s Ogori/Magongo local government area have had their result sheets tampered with or prefilled.
Melaye added that there are widespread demonstrations in the units because voters are refusing to be recognised and are demanding that the area’s voters be given access to the plain result sheets.
A brief video that the former senator from Kogi made public on social media on Saturday morning revealed these, coinciding with the state’s ongoing off-season gubernatorial election.
He urged the people to resist any form of malpractice that could scuttle their wishes as the people of Kogi.

significant protest is currently taking place in all polling places in Kogi State’s Ogori/Mangogo local government, according to Melaye.
People have already filled out and tampered with the result sheets, refused to cast a ballot, and insisted that the plain result sheets be given back to the agents in compliance with electoral law.
“Don’t accredit, don’t vote, protest and resist it,” Melaye continued, “if they refuse to show you result sheets in all polling units across the state.” It’s democracy here. Both the process and our votes must be safeguarded. We have to make certain that every rule is followed and adhered to.
