PDP accuses APC of preparing fake election results in Edo

The governorship election in Edo state is still ongoing as being conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to say that the results for nine local governments are already prepared

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cried out saying the results for nine local government areas in the governorship election in Edo state are already out. 

However, the party, which has Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its governorship candidate in the election, said in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, that the results are fake.

The party accused the All Progressives Congress (APC), which has Godwin Obaseki as candidate, of writing the fake results in collusion with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). 

“We have become aware that senior members of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC), in collusion with certain staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have started writing fake and fictitious results as part of their plan to manipulate the Edo State Gubernatorial Election which is taken place today.

“We are aware that these APC members are working in collusion with Mrs Amina Zakari, an INEC national official; Mrs Imoudu Sule, Edo state INEC PRO, the Delta state REC, and the National deputy director of operations. 

“We are also aware that these officials have distributed millions of Naira to the local government electoral officers to get them to write false and fictitious results in favour of APC even before votes are cast. 

“It is necessary to warn the Nigerian public that our party will resist any attempts by the ruling party to subvert the will of the people by any engagement in the substitution of electoral materials.

“We urge all well-meaning Nigerians to counsel INEC and the Ruling Party to refrain from acting in a manner that may lead to the breakdown of law and other,” the statement read. 

However, the complaint by the PDP has resulted in varied opinions and comments on social media. While some of the respondents supported the party and its claim, others slammed it for raising what they see as a false alarm.
