The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alledged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was writing results in nearby Kogi State to replace the authentic results, it believes would be in favour of the Governor Godwin Obaseki.
PDP has drawn the attention of Security agents and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), pointing out that Edo North Senatorial districts where the APC was in commanding lead was being written for a replacement at night.
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, some fake results were already circulates on, urging INEC to insist on doing the right things.
The statement said; “Already, we are aware that results are being manufactured in Kogi state to be used as replacements for already declared results, particularly in Edo North.
“We draw the attention of INEC to such results being bandied, including the fake result claimed to have emanated from Etsako West, where a vote of 914 was allocated to the APC, as against the genuine declaration at the polling units.
“A cursory check on the results being circulated in the public space by the APC failed a litmus test of the identification numbers of INEC declaration of results.
“Whereas polling unit results are identified as Form EC8A, the results being paraded by the APC carry a fake identification number of Form EC60E.
“Our party expresses concerns that this sinister adventure of the APC is being encouraged by the slow pace of uploading already declared results in INEC’s virtual portal.
“We are alarmed by the report that this development has led to avoidable post-election violence, which has resulted in the reported killing of innocent Edo citizens, who came out to perform their civic responsibilities as the police allegedly withdrew their men in certain collation centres.”
The party further called on the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and the electoral umpire to rise up and defend the voice of the people without further delay.
“Our party, standing with the people, calls on the Inspector General of Police to protect innocent Nigerians from this electoral defeat response by the APC.
“We charge the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to ensure that his officials are not compromised to replace results, as the people of Edo state have spoken loud and clear with their votes in their respective units, and they are already aware of the authentic results,” it added.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress APC has accused the Peoples Democratic Party PDP of churning out fake results for Saturday’s Edo state Governorship election, urging the public to ignore same.
The APC in a statement by the spokesman of its campaign council “laughed at the speculative results by the PDP where they churned out fake figures in the pretence that it has already secured majority votes”.
According to the statement, PDP’s “electoral vaudeville” will not secure them the elections, noting that the figures and images being bandied in the media are falsities that should be regarded without any seriousness.
He said, “Before the election, we warned that PDP has prepared doctored election results and fake figures to make it appear that they will win the elections. They have even graduated to hosting a fake website for INEC where they release their concocted results.
“I want to urge all APC supporters in Edo to remain calm as we had the majority of the votes in the state cast in our favour. A falling tree makes a louder crack than an erect tree.
