The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State said its candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu has won the majority vote during Saturday’s election.
The party said the votes have rejected Obaseki, while declaring that some results being released in the social media were manufactured by the Peoples Democratic Party.
In a statement Saturday night, John Mayaki, the director of publicity for Ize-Iyamu’s campaign accused the PDP of creating a fake website, where it releases speculative results, ascribing majority votes to Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Mayaki said the PDP’s ploy was laughable.
Mayaki said PDP’s “electoral vaudeville” will not secure them the elections.
He said the figures and images being bandied in the media are falsities that should be regarded without any seriousness.
“Before the election, we warned that PDP has prepared doctored election results and fake figures to make it appear that they will win the elections.
“They have even graduated to hosting a fake website for INEC where they release their concocted results.
“I want to urge all APC supporters in Edo to remain calm as we had majority of the votes in the state cast in our favour. A falling tree makes a louder crack than an erect tree.
“PDP has been churning out false figures. They released an edited picture, for instance, of Comrade Oshiomhole voting for PDP.
“They released news that PDP won in our candidate’s polling unit. These are all falsehood. We will not stoop to their level.”
