Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has rejected the result of Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, the governor said, the entire process in Edo State was marred by irregularities from officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, who sabotaged the system, making it difficult for the APC votes to count.

“The governor also thanked the governorship candidate of the APC in Edo, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, for his resilience and doggedness.
He also assured that the APC is already gathering evidence to proceed to the Election Petition Tribunal any moment from now, confident that the party will get judgment in due time.

“Governor Uzodinma urged all APC faithfuls and party State supporters to remain calm and law abiding, noting that what happened in Edo State was a sabotage to our hard-worn democracy in Nigeria,” the statement read.
