PDP Alleges Plot by APC to Alter Edo Election Result

The Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressive Congress of mounting pressure on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to change result of the Edo State governorship election.

This was contained in a stamen by National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan who alleged that the APC was pressuring on INEC to increase the result of the party in some polling units to APC’s favour.

Ologbondiyan stated that INEC’s result portal was increasingly becoming unstable, making it prone for result altering.

“We have also been informed that the INEC Chairman has come under intense pressure from the APC to allow the replacement of results declared in the riverine areas of Edo State in other to jerk up figures for the APC.

“We appeal to the INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, not to fall for this pressure in the interest of the unity and cohesion of our country.

“We have the results as already declared in the various polling units and we urge INEC to confine itself to these results already declared by its officials at the polling units.

“We invite Nigerians to closely monitor results being declared on the INEC virtual portal to ensure the wishes of the people of Edo State are not altered overnight,” Ologbondiyan said.

INEC had setup a portal for result upload which it said is purely for research purpose rather than for election result collation
