Edo decides: PDP, Obaseki sourcing materials for election petition tribunal – APC alleges




The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State has claimed that panic has befallen the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) camp.
According to the APC, the PDP and its candidate in the ongoing election have reportedly started to perceive defeat at the polls.
The APC, in a statement signed by Prince John Mayaki, Chairman, Edo State APC Media Campaign Council, claimed that sources close to the party say that Governor Godwin Obaseki is furious with some of his thugs for not wreaking violence despite the presence of armed forces.
The statement sent quoted the source as saying that “Obaseki was not joking when he said a ‘second term is non-negotiable.’ You know Rivers State governor (Wike) has connections in the judiciary, along with Peter Odili. They already know they won’t win so they are planning how they will get the courts to turn the election on its head.
“He has already posted cameramen and different people to gather materials which he will use as evidence. But he has also gathered people that are very good at video editing so that they can doctor the evidence.
“The only way to counter that is if pressmen from media houses can be there. Otherwise, they will edit the videos and tender it as evidence at the tribunal.”
The party quoted its source to have also disclosed that Edo State Deputy Governor, Phillip Shaibu, who was protested against by the people of Jattu in Etsako West on Thursday, had instructed some spies not to decamp from the APC as they would serve as witnesses when the time comes. They plan to suborn the party by giving false testimonies.
