The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of Edo state chapter have alleged that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) had already written the results of 9 local government areas in the state.
The PDP party said that APC masterminded this in connivance with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials in the state.
PDP also said that the APC distributed 2 million Naira to election supervisors who will eventually announce the already written result.
Speaking through its publicity secretary, Chris Nehikhare, the PDP said it would not allow such criminality to go unstopped.
“It has come to our attention that INEC and the state government have seriously compromised the election that is going to take place tomorrow (today). People involved in this conspiracy are those that have leaked this information to the PDP and to us to act very fast.
“She (INEC member of staff) has been sharing two million naira to supervisors in at least nine local government areas of Edo State.
“What they have done is that they have written results for the nine local government areas on behalf of the APC. These results are being held by the supervisors and the collation officers at a point where they plan to switch the results with the real ones at the local government level, once the election is done”
But responding to the allegation, the Chairman of Edo state APC said that it is totally false and an imagination of PDP’s selfish interest.
“That is a figment of their own imagination. They have lost the election already. I am the state Chairman of APC. I have been in my home area for three days. So, what time will I have to go and talk about bribing INEC?
“If anything at all, it is the PDP people that know the INEC people. After all, most these INEC officers were employed during the PDP government. We have trained our agents and they are determined to be very vigilant.
“The truth is that all the plans PDP made to create havoc in Edo State have virtually failed. All the efforts they have made to manipulate the process have also failed. They can now see that there is nothing other than the true transparent PDP process that will give us result in this election.” Ojezua said.
