Edo election: APC rejects results, alleges foul play

APC rejects results of Saturday’s governorship election. Source: Original The media campaign council chairman while alleging that the governorship election results were tampered with in order to increase the numbers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), added that APC leaders will announce the party’s next course of action as soon as possible.

After collating and sorting of the election results, the electoral umpire declared that Obaseki won 13 local governments out of the 18 local government areas of the state. The election was keenly contested between the candidate of the APC and Obaseki. Obaseki polled a total number of 307,955 to defeat his main challenger, Ize-Iyamu who scored 223,619. Governor Obaseki was returned elected after polling the highest number of votes in the election.

In a related development, the governorship candidate of the APC, Ize-Iyamu, has released a statement following his defeat at the just-concluded Edo governorship election. Ize-Iyamu lost to the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Godwin Obaseki. In his official reaction after INEC’s declaration, Ize-Iyamu thanked and appreciated his supporters for their support and determination during the election just as he claimed that they “had to endure many evils including being prevented from voting”. The APC governorship candidate said he is currently studying the results of the election and will soon announce his next move.

Obaseki in reaction said words failed in commending his supporters, saying their collective will made the “triumph over godfatherism” possible, apparently referring to the former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
