The APGA leadership also cautioned against attempts to sweep the matter under the carpet.

In a letter to IGP through their Counsel, Patrick Ikwueto, SAN the party leadership appealed to the Police Boss to use his good offices and exercise his powers under the Police Act to apprehend the culprits whose names he gave as    
"Alhaji Sadiq Masala, Barrister Morgan Anyalechi, Mrs Ella Nwabueze Ezeanya, Joseph Tondo, Chief Dickson Ogu, Sunday Obasohan, Barrister Bala Bako, Alhaji Garba Barma and Ferguson Opara.

Ikwueto further urged the IGP to cause an investigation to be commenced with a view to prosecuting the said culprits as provided by the law adding that they hope action would be  taken along the lines highlighted  within 14 days from the  date of the letter.

APGA had reported the alleged forgery to the FCT  Commissioner of Police, by a letter dated 25 July, 2012 and  to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by a letter also dated July 23, 2012.
