Speaking on a Channels on Friday, said: ‘INEC was biased even in the way it dealt with our primaries, INEC was biased in the way in which it selectively used the card readers or the non-use of card readers in some states where it suits them.’

‘This morning, the leadership of the party met and agreed that we would work with a party called African Action Congress (AAC), while we are still in court to reclaim our mandate,” he had said.

Oshiomhole, further said: “I have never spoken at any forum that we have aligned with any party. There is only one party (I oversee) and that is APC, if there is going to be alignment, I will know.

‘I can’t choose to be in the know. That has never been discussed with me or with any of the members of the national working committee.”

‘I can’t appoint next Senate President or Speaker’

‘Do I look like someone who can appoint or impose somebody on the senate, even if I wish to?” he asked, adding: “Is it be reference to my size or a standing army I have? All I have is the power to persuade, to negotiate and to point out what might go wrong if we do not talk together so that in the process of electing leaders, we do not run into crisis.

‘All I can tell you is that each geopolitical zone will have a principal officer in the Senate and house of reps; what that principal officer will be has not been resolved.

‘I have huge reservations about the way INEC conducted this election. INEC bias against APC is so clear,” he said.

‘INEC was biased even in the way it dealt with our primaries, INEC was biased in the way in which it selectively used the card readers or the non-use of card readers in some states where it suits them.’
