There has been uproar in Kogi State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) collation centre as the Senate President Bukola Saraki has been accused of giving instruction sto the electoral panel sent from PDP National headquarters to manipulate the results brought from the fields from Kogi West Senatorial District in favour of Senator Dino Melaiye.

It would be recalled that the PDP held its ward congresses to pick three ad-hoc delegates on Saturday. Report has it that the entry of returned delegates for the Central and East is ongoing smoothly, with that of Kogi West having challenges caused by the interference of the Senate President, to favour Dino Melaye.

Senator Dino Melaye, party sources disclosed, did not show up at all for the Ward Congress, but the Senate President is alleged to have directed the panel to help include some names in favour of the Kogi West Senator.

The Chairman of the Kogi Electoral panel who is from Kwara state is said to be making fruitless efforts to include the names of the Senator’s who were not present at the Ward Congresses.

However, party officials of PDP in Kogi State have vowed to resist the manipulations and instructions from Senate President, saying impunity must not be allowed.
