In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary,Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party claimed APC wrote the result ahead of the election.

“They are also working with Mrs. Imoudu Sule, Edo State INEC PRO, the Delta State REC, and the National Deputy Director of Operations.

“We are also aware that these officials have distributed millions of Naira to LGA Electoral Officers.

“The plan is to get them to write false & fictitious results in favor of APC even before votes are cast.

“It is necessary to warn the Nigerian public that our Party will resist any attempts by the Ruling Party to subvert the will of the people by any engagement in the substitution of electoral materials.

“We urge all well-meaning Nigerians to counsel INEC and the Ruling Party to refrain from acting in a manner that may lead to the breakdown of law and other.

“May God bless Edo State. May God bless Nigeria,” the statement read.
