The All Progressives Congress (APC), Edo State chapter, has rejected the election results read by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which declared the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Godwin Obaseki. The party claimed that there was obvious foul play in the just-concluded election.
The Chairman of the APC Media Campaign Council, John Mayaki, who disclosed this in a statement also called on party members to stay calm while party leaders study the result and decide what is next.
Mr Mayaki said, “Our people were arbitrarily arrested, many of the figures were fabricated. Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had an advantage. They rejected our results and jerked up theirs. There was an arbitrary arrest of local party members, who could have resisted the outrage. The state Governor, Godwin Obaseki was busy allegedly diverting attention with a false alarm. Obaseki shouted that he was being rigged out and blamed INEC at the initial stage but that was to divert attention from the evil going on in the field.”
