Bad Losers – Edo Apc Chairman Mocks Pdp


BEVERLY HILLS, September 29, (THEWILL) – Anselm Ojezua, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, has described the Peoples Democratic Party as “bad losers” for rejecting the results of the governorship election in the state.

Ojezua, who said the entire process of the election had been nothing but peaceful, said it was “a pity that PDP expected to win in a state that it had run down”.

“This is just a case of a bad loser. It is a pity that the PDP expects to win in a state which it had run down,” he told reporters in Benin.

“Though the announcement of the results is still ongoing, I commend INEC thus far. The process was very peaceful. INEC was efficient in delivery of materials to ensure that they got to locations on time.”

He advised the PDP to channel its grievances to the appropriate quarters.

The PDP had earlier announced the rejection of the results of the election, describing it as “fabricated and pre-determined”

Godwin Obaseki of the APC was declared winner of the Edo State Governorship election, polling a total of 319,483 votes to defeat his closest rival and candidate of the PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who polled 253, 173, according to the official results from the 18 local governments in the state as announced by the electoral commission on Thursday .
