The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) Edo State, of strategizing to burn the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) office in order to destroy all evidence of what transpired during the last governorship election in the state.
The spokesman of Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, made the allegation on Saturday, adding that the party has been notified of an event that happened on Wednesday, when its (PDP) representatives and that of the APC in Edo State chapters were at the INEC office in Benin City in continuation of the inspection and verification of materials used during the 2016 governorship election in compliance with the order of the Election Petition Tribunal.
According to him, PDP reliably gathered that during the exercise, some APC members had plans to destroy all evidence that could implicate APC as a result of the outcome of the governorship election in the state.
The PDP spokesman claimed that the evidences that came out from the office of the INEC shook the APC representatives, such they started accusing INEC staff of conspiracy.
