Less than 24 hours to the Edo State governorship election, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of conniving with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to write the results of the yet to be conducted election in the 18 local government areas of the state.

But Anselm Ojezua, Edo State APC chairman, in his reaction described PDP allegation as figment of their own imagination, saying that PDP has lost the election already.

PDP in a press conference addressed in Benin by the state Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, specifically accused a top INEC official in Edo State of distributing the sum of N2 million each to electoral supervisors to enable them write the results ahead of the election.

According to Nehikhare, there is an authentic information at our disposal that the top official is the coordinator for INEC in compromising the supervisors and is sharing the sum of N2 million each to supervisors in nine local government areas.

“The said official is under the control of the resident electoral commissioner (REC) from one of the neighbouring states and their activities are being coordinated by an INEC national commissioner.”

He warned that the PDP and indeed Edo people would resist attempts by INEC officials acting in concert with the Edo State government and the APC to write results ahead of the election.

“If any of them tries to switch results, the N2 million they collected will be used for their funerals. They should enjoy their money and steer clear from this part of dishonor”.

Edo INEC Public Relations Officer, Priscilla Imodu-Sule, when called for her reaction to the allegation declined comments.

But Anselm Ojezua, Edo State APC chairman, in his reaction described PDP allegation as figment of their own imagination, saying that PDP has lost the election already.

According to Ojezua, “I am the state chairman of APC; I have been in my home area for three days, campaigning from unit to unit, door to door. So what time will I have to go and talk about bribing INEC?

“If anything at all it is the PDP people that knows the INEC people, after all most these INEC officers were employed during the PDP government.

“Any serious minded party, like our own, has trained its 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 process that will give us result in this election.

“And because they did not work hard, they have nothing to show for their presence in government in Edo State in the past, because they don’t have good will with the people, it has finally done on them that failure is their lot. And so shall it be in Jesus name.”
