A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Owere Dickson Imasogie, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of rigging the March 28 presidential election.
Speaking to Daily Times in Benin City, he said that if the election were to be free and fair, PDP would have won with a wide margin, adding that never in the history of Nigeria had an election been massively rigged than what happened in the Northern region. He was sad that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) connived with the APC to rig the election.
According to him: ?We expected INEC to be neutral, but it entered into an unholy alliance with APC and massively rigged the election in the North. Personally, I saw it coming and, based on intelligence report, I alerted my party that the APC was planning to rig the election, but the leadership disregarded my warning and, today, I am vindicated.
?How did the Northerners in Southern Nigeria get registered in the North, with INEC providing them with Permanent Voter Cards (PVC). How come children of about eight years old were allowed to vote in the Northern region? That is rigging of the highest order,? Imasogie added.
On the victory of the PDP in Edo State, he noted that he was not surprised because he knew that the Party would win convincingly, because ?Edo is a PDP state. I told the media, before the Presidential and National Assembly election that the PDP would get up to 70 per cent of the votes in Edo State, and it came to pass,? he added.
