The Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of mounting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to manipulate the ongoing collation of results for the Edo State governorship election.
CURRENT NEWS NOW has no evidence of such pressure.
In a statement signed by the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Saturday, the party alleged that it is aware that the commission is under pressure to distort results from the riverine areas of the state in favour of APC.
“The PDP has observed that INEC’s virtual portal is increasingly becoming unstable.
“We have also been informed that the INEC chairman has come under intense pressure from the APC to allow the replacement of results declared in the riverine areas of Edo State in other to jerk up figures for the APC.
