06 October 2016, 15:02

Abuja - The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the outcome of the Edo State governorship election won by Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The caucus described the victory of the APC candidate as day light robbery.

PDP’s candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamo, came second at the guber election which held on September 28.

A statement signed by head, publicity division for national publicity secretary Chinwe Nnorom, said “The National Caucus frowned at the brazen display of avarice and desperation against the Edo electorates and democracy on September 28 and 29, 2016 by the ruling APC in collaboration with INEC and security agencies all in the name of Governorship Election.

“Consequently, the Meeting unanimously rejected the outcome of the charade that took place in Edo State.

“Finally, the National Caucus calls on all our Party members nationwide and in Edo State in particular to remain calm and resilient in the face of this daylight robbery of their mandate to our Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. We believe that justice will be served.”
