Edo Election: INEC Reacts To Refusal of PDP Agents To Sign Results

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has stated that the refusal of some political party agents to sign the Edo governorship election result sheet did not invalidate the poll.

INEC National Commissioner in Charge of Publicity, Prince Solomon Soyebi, stated this in an interview with newsmen on Thursday in Benin.

Soyebi said that the procedure for the validity of an election was stipulated in the Electoral Act and Election Guidelines.

“The refusal of any party agents to sign the result sheet does not in any way invalidate the declared result of the election,” Soyebi said.

The agents of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and that of the Young Democratic Party had refused to sign the result sheet of the Edo governorship election.

He commended the people of Edo for their peaceful conduct that allowed the election to be peaceful and concluded in one ballot.

INEC on Thursday declared Godwin Obasekiof the All Progressives Congress, APC, winner of the keenly contested Edo governorship election.
