Ize-Iyamu accuses INEC of doctoring electoral documents

05 October 2016, 15:11

Benin City -  The Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu Campaign Organisation on Tuesday highlighted a plot by the APC, led by Governor Adams Oshiomhole, to perfect what it called the, “rigging carried out in connivance with INEC”, on Wednesday, 28th September 2016 during the gubernatorial election held in Edo state.

In a statement signed by Efe Igbinovia for the organization, it said it has received calls from numerous people seeking to know why Presiding Officers in the just concluded gubernatorial election are being called back by INEC to ‎come to its offices to sign an undisclosed document.

“We are also told that some Presiding Officers are also moving in and out of government house to sign this said document. Fortunately, some of these persons have volunteered information about the documents that they were invited to sign and they have pledged to give evidence in court”.

The statement said, it will be foolhardy for the youth corpers reportedly to desist from such act of illegality as it is capable of ‎landing them in jail, adding ,”To be forewarned it to be forearmed.

We also call on the security agents to investigate this matter and bring the culprits to book. It is unreasonable for someone to be signing for an election document days after its conduct”.

“We are not unaware of the plans by Adams Oshiomhole to destroy all evidence that will lead to the emergence of our candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, at the Tribunal. ‎However, we are determined to continue to fight for the people in order to reclaim the mandate freely given to us by the good people of Edo State”.

The organization added, “Edo people came out to vote on Wednesday, September 28th, 2016, they voted for justice, equity, fair tax, industrialisation, freedom from dictatorial tendencies and economic recession, only for their votes to be upturned in the night. However, these issues they voted for will continue to be the foundation upon which our stolen mandate will be pursued and reclaimed”.

The statement appreciated Edo people for remaining steadfast in the struggle to reclaim the people’s land from the hands of upstarts and opportunists who see governance as a means to an end.
