The All Progressives Congress has rejected the September 19 Edo governorship election result which brought back Godwin Obaseki as the Governor of the state.
Chairman of the APC Media Campaign Council, John Mayaki in his statement on Sunday September 20 alleged that there was foul play due to “strong-arm tactics”. Mayaki also claimed that there was an arbitrary arrest of local party members.
He urged party members to remain calm while the result is studied to decide on the next line of action.
The statement read;
“On this note, we hereby reject the outcome of the election, and urge our members to stay calm. We thank them for their support. We’ll be announcing our decision and course of action shortly.
“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.
“The Party also notes the arbitrary arrest of our local party members, who could have resisted the outrage, while Mr Obaseki was busy diverting attention with false alarm.
“There were obvious illicit tampering with results, to shore up PDP numbers and mark down that of our party. Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had advantage; they rejected our results and jerked up theirs.
“The ‘strong arm’ tactics, as seen in the election, cannot slide. Our people were arbitrarily arrested, while many of the figures were fabricated.”
According to the official result, Mr Obaseki polled 307,955 votes to defeat his closet rival, Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC, who scored 223,619 votes.
