Reports on 9ja news says that members of the the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo have rejected the results of the governorship election where Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) emerged as the winner.
The party is alledging a foul play, however, it has called on her members to remain calm while the party study the results and decide on the next line of action.
A statement by Chairman of its Media Campaign Council, Prince John Mayaki reads, Our people were arbitrarily arrested, many of the figures were fabricated. There was illicit tampering with results, to shore up PDP’s numbers and mark down APC’s.
“Areas where we won, they cancelled the results. They decreased the votes in areas we had advantage. They rejected our results and jerked up theirs.
“There was arbitrary arrest of local party members, who could have resisted the outrage, while Obaseki was busy diverting attention with false alarm.
“Obaseki shouted that he was being rigged out and blamed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the initial stage, but that was to divert attention from the evil going on in the field.”
