The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Ebonyi State, Godswill Obioma has denied collecting N300m bribe for the purpose of reducing the votes of President Muhammadu Buhari in the Feb 23 general election in Ikwo and Ezza South Federal Constituency.

Obioma stated this while reacting to allegations by the APC Candidate for Ikwo and Ezza South Federal Constituency, Chinedu Ogar that he was arrested by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel (SPIP) for collecting bribe to reduce the President’s and other APC candidates’ votes in the area.

The REC described the allegation as ridiculous noting that Presidential votes were declared as collated.

He pointed out that altered and mutilated results which were being investigated had nothing to do with presidential votes but Federal constituency votes.
