Edo Election a fraud, as Governorship Candidates release Statement

by on October 14, 2016
The Forum of Edo State Governor­ship Candidates has alleged that the result as declared by the Returning Officer declaring Mr Godwin Obaseki as the gover­nor-elect was not a true reflection of the vote of the electorates in the September 28 election.
In a statement by the Forum’s Chairman Hon Omorogieva Gbajumo and Secretary Com­rade Cosmos Irabor, described themselves as credible men who will not stoop so low to jeopardize a government formed out of alleged electoral fraud.
Hon Gbajumo re­called that the gover­nor-elect had in an in­terview stated that he will not accept anybody from the opposition as commissioner into his cabinet, adding that the group will continue to insist on credible poll as it is the case of a true de­mocracy.
According to the state­ment, “Against the back­drop, we the under list­ed persons/group and members of the opposi­tion hereby state categorically in the strongest and clearest terms that we are responsible/hon­ourable men and will never have any interest or participate in a gov­ernment that is a prod­uct of electoral fraud as was evident in the just-concluded election where voters were finan­cially induced by your party All Progressive Congress (APC) that preaches ‘War against Corruption’, more so, the result declared by INEC does not reflect the votes and mandates of the electorates.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this group will continue to insist on credible, free, fair elec­tions and good gover­nance as Edo State is greater than any party or individual”, it added.
