The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo on Monday denied allegations that it connived with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the governorship election in the state.
The state chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua denied the allegations in an interview in Benin.
He said the PDP who made the allegations has no evidence to proof the claims.
“Why will there be a connivance? Where is the evidence of such a connivance? I hope you know that these persons they are complaining of were, first of all, appointed by the PDP and as of the time they appointed them, they knew their antecedents.
“They were the same people who were in office when the Bayelsa election was conducted and the PDP won. They were the same people who conducted elections in Rivers. In spite of the scandalous activities that took place there, we had a situation where the PDP took the day.
“The same people were in office when Buhari lost elections years ago. So what are they talking about?.” he said.
He also dismissed claims that most of the cancelled votes belong to the PDP.
“I do not agree. But let us assume that they are correct. The total void votes is 30,000. Let me even say we concede of it (void votes) to them. Does it change the result? It will not. So, it is a mute point,” he added.
