A former Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has called for the cancellation of the National Assembly elections in Delta South.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, he said he had made the call after the electoral umpire (INEC), announced the results of the Delta South senatorial district in which he lost to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, James Manager.

According to him, the elections were fraught with a lot of electoral malpractices, irregularities and violence.

Consequently, he said he petitioned INEC during the collation of results and the final announcement at the Senatorial Collation Centre in Oleh, Isoko South LGA after which he called for the cancellation.

Uduaghan, however, thanked the people of Delta South Senatorial District “for their overwhelming support throughout the period of electioneering”.

He also asked his supporters to remain calm and peaceful, saying further directives would be communicated.

The PDP candidate who is the incumbent in the senatorial district beat Uduaghan by securing 258,812 votes.
