    What is the point in canceling the election that has already produced results at different Polling boots and Polling Units? Are there no longer copies of already collated results? This is unthinkable. Tafawa Belewa LGA is stronghold of PDP in Bauchi state and they won the election BUT if there is any rerun INEC and APC and the Presidency would collude with Army and Police to rig the election in favour of APC as it they did in Ekiti and Osun states recently.
