Edo election: Candidates call for cancellation of results

The Chairman of the Inter-party Advisory Council, IPAC, Mr Frank Ukonga, who contested the Edo governorship election on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, and three other candidates in that election have called for the cancellation of the results declared by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Ukonga, Mr Andrew Igwemoh of the Advanced Congress of Democrats, ACD, the candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Dr Omorogieva Gbajumo, and Mr Thompson Osadolor of Kowa Party, said INEC falsified the results to favor the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The candidates, who vowed to continue in their advocacy for the cancellation of the elections so that the will of Edo people will be upheld, argued that it was the only way to sustain democracy in the country.
Recall that Godwin Obaseki of the APC was declared governor-elect of the state last week after he garnered 319,483 votes in the election, as against the 253,173 votes polled by Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
