The All Progressives Congress in Edo State has rejected the result of Saturday’s gubernatorial election in the state, and alleged foul play.
The Chairman of the APC Media Campaign Council, John Mayaki, said “the party rejects the result”, citing alleged “strong-arm tactics”.
“Our people were arbitrarily arrested, many of the figures were fabricated,” the statement read.
“Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had advantages,” the party further claimed. “They rejected our results and jerked up theirs.”
The statement further alleged foul play on the part of Obaseki, claiming he diverted aention to manipulate the results.
“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 statement said.
The party thanked party members for their support, adding that “leaders would announce their decision and course of action as soon as possible”.
