The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied the allegation that the party is planning to rig the Wednesday governorship election in Edo State.

A statement signed in Abuja by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye on Saturday, September 24, said the rigging story is false.

“We have read the comments attributed to the Deputy Director General, Obaseki Campaign Organization, John Osakue to the effect that our Party is working to rig the forthcoming Edo State Gubernatorial Election.

“This statement is false, misleading and totally in keeping with the All Progressives Congress (APC) principle of propaganda over no substance,” he said.

He said the PDP has since raised the alarm over the plans of the APC to manipulate the electoral process in Edo State.

“John Osakue’s comment is therefore a smokescreen designed to deceive Nigerians and was made to distract people from plans perfected by APC to rig the Election.

“The objective is to falsely curry sympathy from the Nigerian public while orchestrating and perpetrating their nefarious activities.

“We urge the Obaseki Campaign Organisation as well as the APC to stop peddling the falsehood,” he said.

Adeyeye said that the people of Edo have decided to vote PDP on Wednesday.

He urged the people to come out en masse to vote for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the PDP candidate in the election.
