Although collation is still ongoing at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the result of the Edo state governorship election.
Addressing reporters at his Benin residence, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the PDP, described the results being announced by INEC as a “rape of democracy”.
Ize-Iyamu said his party monitored the the election through its agents across the state.
“Contrary to claim that PDP brought in 8,000 militants, the election showed that PDP is law-abiding and did not involve in illegality. The delays in announcing official result by INEC was in order to announce predetermined fabricated results,” he said.
“The Figures being announced by INEC do not represent the massive turnout. We have told our agents to bring all the results issued at the polling units. We do not want to rely on the messages they sent.
“In the next three or four days, will have complete record. From findings, it is clear a lot of manipulation has taken place.”
