APC rejects election results in Edo state

The All Progressive Congress Edo chapter has rejected the result of the Edo Elections carried out on Saturday. In a tweet they wrote:

“To Edo people, our party faithfuls & supporters, we have noted your outcry but urge you all to stay calm while we study the #EdoDecides2020 results & decide what next.

The “strong arm” tactics, as seen in the election, cannot slide. Our people were arbitrarily arrested, while many of the figures were fabricated.

“There were obvious illicit tampering with results, to shore up PDP numbers and mark down that of our party. Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had advantage, they rejected our results and jerked up theirs,” 

“On this note, we hereby reject the outcome of the election, and urge our members to stay calm. We thank them for their support. We’ll be announcing our decision & course of action shortly,” 

Ize-Iyamu has also wrote message of gratitude to his voters:

“I thank and appreciate my supporters, who had to endure many evils including being prevented from voting, for their support and determination during the election. I assure you all that I am studying the results along with other party members and will announce my next move soon".
