Edo 2020: APC to decide on next step

By Ozioruva Aliu

THE All Progressives Party (APC) in Edo State has alleged foul play in Saturday’s Governorship election but called on party members to stay calm while party leaders study the result and decide what is next.

A statement by the Chairman of the APC Media Campaign Council, Mr. John Mayaki said the party rejected the result, citing alleged strong-arm tactics.

He said “Our people were arbitrarily arrested, many of the figures were fabricated,” said the terse statement, which the party said was only a preliminary reaction.

It further alleged illicit tampering with results, to shore up PDP numbers and markdown APC’s. “Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had an advantage,” the party further claimed. “They rejected our results and jerked up theirs.”

Meanwhile, the party also claimed there was arbitrary arrest of local party members, who could have resisted the outrage, while Governor Godwin Obaseki was busy diverting attention with 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”, the statement said.

The party, however, told its members to stay calm, thanking them for their support, and adding that party leaders were studying the result and would announce their decision and course of action as soon as possible.
