The Governor of Imo State and the Deputy Chairman of the APC Edo State Governorship Campaign Council, Senator Hope Uzodimma, has rejected the just published Edo State Gubernatorial Election results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Governor in a release signed by Oguwike Nwachuku, Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser on Sunday expressed unhappy as he got to the Imo State Government House Owerri Sunday morning after the election which held on Saturday, 19th September.
Governor Uzodimma unveiled that the entire process in Edo State was characterized by irregularities from officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who sabotaged the system, making it difficult for the APC votes to count.
Governor Uzodimma went on to describe the conduct of INEC officials in the Edo Governorship Election as ‘shameful’.
However, Uzodinma appreciated the Governorship Candidate of the APC in Edo, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, for his efforts.
In addition, the governor assured that the APC is already gathering evidence to proceed to the Election Petition Tribunal any moment from now, confident that the results will be justified.
Governor Uzodimma urged all APC members and party supporters to remain calm and law abiding, adding that what happened in Edo State is a sabotage to democracy in Nigeria.
