The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has alleged foul play in the just-concluded governorship election in the stat

The party in a statement issued by the head of media of the Ize Iyamu campaign council, John Maiyaki, urged its members to remain calm while party leaders study the result and decide its next action.

The party in the statement rejected the result of the just-concluded governorship election, alleging strong-arm tactics in the governorship election.

According to Mayaki: “Our people were arbitrarily arrested, many of the figures were fabricated.

“Areas where we won, they cancelled them. They decreased the votes in areas we had advantage. They rejected our results and jerked up theirs.”

Mayaki who also alleged that there was an arbitrary arrest of local party members, who could have resisted the outrage, accused the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki of “diverting attention with false alarm.”

“Obaseki shouted that he was being rigged out and blamed INEC at the initial stage but that was to divert attention from the evil going on in the field”, the statement said.
