Some political parties have called for the cancellation of the Edo governorship election which held on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.

Four candidates who contested in the just concluded election, accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of falsifying results.

The candidates are Mr Frank Ukonga of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Mr Andrew Igwemoh of the Advanced Congress of Democrats (ACD),  Dr Omorogieva Gbajumo of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Mr Thompson Osadolor of Kowa Party.

INEC announced the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag-bearer, Godwin Obaseki the winner of the election.

Ukonga, who is also the Chairman of the Inter-party Advisory Council (IPAC), said “The results that INEC made public do not tally with what most, if not all, our agents came back home with. We are calling for the cancellation of the entire election because INEC gave APC the PDP votes.”

The aggrieved candidates also said they will continue the call for the cancellation of the polls, so the people’s will be obeyed.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the just concluded Edo governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has called on his supporters to remain calm.
