The All Progressives Congress have denied reports claiming that the Election Petition Tribunal has ordered a recount of the votes cast during the Osun State governorship elections which took place on August 9, 2014.
Kunle Oyatomi, the party spokesman in the state said, “The APC calls on residents to disregard the online report.
“The story is not only false; it is a fabrication by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agents.
“There is nothing in that story which happened or is likely to happen.
“The PDP has turned the propagation of lies and the fabrication of stories into its new psychological bastion.
The party accused the PDP of extricating itself from the reality on ground and “regaling itself in fantasy”.
The party further added that “no vote was recounted by anybody and there was no court order to that effect. So it is all lies.
“So the claim that its candidate, Iyiola Omisore, is likely to be declared winner of that election by the tribunal is mere hallucinations.”
Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was declared winner of the fiercely contested elections.
