THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised alarm over plots to replace election results where the PDP is leading, in the Edo gubernatorial election held on Saturday
The party in a statement signef by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “While we charge our members to remain vigilant and follow their results ‘bumper to bumper’ to all the collation centres, we, however, caution the security agencies against being used to replace results that have already been declared at the respective polling units.
“Already, we are aware that results are being manufactured in Kogi state to be used as replacements for already declared results, particularly in Edo North.
“We draw the attention of INEC to such results being bandied by the APC, including the fake result claimed to have emanated from Etsako West, where a vote of 914 was allocated to the APC, as against the genuine declaration at the polling units.
“A cursory check on the results being circulated in the public space by the APC failed a litmus test of the identification numbers of INEC declaration of results.”
As of 1.00 am on Sunday, 860 results from the election were yet to be submitted.
Accirding to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) result portal,, so far, a total of 1,767 result sheets have been submitted and uploaded to the INEC result portal, out of 2,627 results being expected..
