#EdoDecides: APC,PDP in war of words

28 September 2016, 08:34

Edo State - The All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party have continued to trade insults and blame each other for attempting to undermine the credibility of the elections as Edo State votes for a new Governor today, Punch reports.

About two million eligible voters are set to cast their vote as the two contesting parties continue to trade blame on the alleged plot of some officials from the Independent National Electoral Commission to compromise the credibility of the voting process.

The PDP recently accused the APC of advising election supervisors to manipulate the outcome of poll results in nine of the 18 18 local government areas.

The PDP however stated that it would strongly resist any attempts by the APC to manipulate results.

"It has come to our attention that INEC and the state government have seriously compromised the election that is going to take place tomorrow (Wednesday). People involved in this conspiracy are those that have leaked this information to the PDP and to us to act very fast.

“What they have done is that they have written results for the nine local government (areas) on behalf of the APC. These results are being held by the supervisors and the collation officers at a point where they plan to switch the results with the real ones at the local government level once the election is done,” PDP Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare said.

The APC however have denied any claims by the PDP that it plans to rig the polls and described the accusations as a figment of the imagination.
