The Department of State Service has uncovered plans by some persons to announce election results ahead of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), warning Nigerians and international observers to disregard any such announcement.
The DSS made this known in a statement signed by the Service spokesman, Marilyn Ogar and made available to newsmen today. She warned Nigerians who have no business with the elections to stay away from polling centres.
“Information at our disposal says that the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP) have sponsored some persons to rig the election and announce Jonathan as the winner ahead INEC so as to cause confusion and put the country in a state of anarchy.
“This statement therefore is to advice all citizens of Nigeria, election observers and the International community to disregard election results which are not announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) , as the commission remains the only authentic body authorized to do so.”
