The APC has described PDP's claims that it intends to manipulate results from Edo Governorship election as mischievous.
Reacting to the claims by PDP, the APC National Vice-Chairman (South), Mr. Segun Oni, simply said “The PDP is simply being mischievous."
Speaking further, Oni said: “From the results I have seen from the field, from where we are monitoring the elections here in Abuja, the APC is in a comfortable lead.
“Out of a hundred, the PDP has not won five, even in units they claim to have won. We are investigating because the number of voters exceeds the number of registered voters per unit,” Oni explained.
Edo state Chairman of APC, Anselm Ojezua, supported Segun Oni's statement by further dismissing PDP's claims saying only the Independent National Electoral Commission reserves the right to determine the winner of the election.
Speaking on the claims, Ojezua said: “The fact that they are actually making those claims already tells me that there is mischief in the air because it is traditional that even when you know what the situation is, you have to wait for INEC to announce the results.
“If you see the fantastic results that are being posted from certain locations, you know that they could not have been credible. Therefore, I think that what they are doing is just to create more confusion,” he said.
APC reacted to PDP's claims when the party claimed that its candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu won 55 percent of the total votes casted in the Edo State governorship election
