Edo election: APC, PDP planning to rig APGA out – Onaiwu

The All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, on Sunday said the All Progressives Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had concluded plans to rig the governorship election which would hold on Wednesday September 28.
A statement issued in Benin city by its governorship candidate, Osaro Onaiwu, said that with less than 72 hours to the election, “more disturbing facts and information” had continued to reach him on efforts being made by the major parties to influence those in charge to help rig the election.

Onaiwu said, the ruling party APC and the PDP knowing that “APGA is the party on ground, have decided to manipulate the process to their advantage.




“We just want to alert the public and the security agents that the will of the people should not be allowed to be tempered with, we are law-abiding people, and we want our votes to count.

“APC and PDP have been accusing each other of plans to rig, while the true position is that they have both perfected plans to rig the people’s party, APGA, out.”

Onaiwu urged security agents “to as a matter of urgency step up their intelligence gathering so as to prevent this evil plans by both parties to rig the election.”

The APGA candidate appealed to his supporters to remain calm as he had the belief that their votes would count.


Onaiwu had earlier called for the postponement of the election, maintaining that October 1 was the “earliest possible date”.
