‘Why We Rejected Edo Election Results’ – PDP Issues Statement

Featured Image

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state has declared that the results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) today were not genuine, adding that the figures contradicted the ones announced at various units and as collated at various wards across the state.

Read statement below:

The PDP in Edo State, after carefully reviewing the events of yesterday September 28th, 2016, totally rejects the purported outcome of the voting exercise and the results announced by INEC.

Firstly, we are in total amazement at the details of the results released by INEC because all of them are fake and not the figures announced at various units and as collated at various wards across the state. The fake results announced by INEC are entirely a fabrication which do not reflect the true picture of what transpired during the election. However, we are not totally surprised because long before now, we had anticipated this and had also warned INEC, security agencies and alerted Edo people at various press conferences and statements, on this situation.

Secondly, based on the results emanating from across the state, PDP won the election fair and square, and with a very comfortable margin. So it is with disgust that we have been receiving fake results which were never recorded in either the units or the ward collation centers.

Our rejection of the results released by INEC so far is based on, but not limited to, the following

We know that a fair turnout of voters was recorded statewide because the weather was very clement and voters were enthusiastic. However, unknown to unsuspecting Edo electorate, INEC had long provided the serial numbers of all result sheets to Adams Oshiomole and his APC government, to print fresh result sheets. This is not a mere allegation.

From the benefit of hindsight, the 18 day period of postponement of the election was to provide enough time for the Governor and his government to print these result sheets and perfect the writing of fake results at the units and at all levels of collation.

This scenario is further buttressed by the fact that on Monday September 26th, 2016, when election materials arrived from the CBN at INEC state office for inspection, agents of the political parties including the APC and PDP were given pre-typed copies of the serial numbers of all result sheets and the ballot papers. This was a clear security breach and an infringement on the credibility of the process, as these are sensitive materials, which should not have been sighted even by INEC officers.

Everything that has transpired had been carefully designed by the Adams Oshiomole led Edo State government and their cohorts in INEC. They perfected a scheme to void thousands of ballot papers, to enable them perpetrate their devices. It is widely recorded that over 88% of the voided ballots were PDP votes.

Postings of Commissioners of Police and and removal of officers from their units, even during the voting exercise, was a clear plot to destabilize the security apparatus in various LGAs and Senatorial districts. The same goes for the DSS personnel across the state.

Choice of collation from places they chose as well as the choice of the state returning officer, in the person of a close friend and associate of former Governors Fayemi and Niyi Adebayo of Ekiti State, who are top APC chieftains. They also prevented our agents in many cases from entering collation centers.

There are numerous accounts and records of Police harassment all over the state, designed to strike fear in the hearts of PDP members, using men of the CID (Criminal Investigation Department), SARS, MOPOL 60 Command, DSS and other security agencies. Of particular concern is the atrocious gangsterism demonstrated in Etsako West, the home of the incumbent APC Governor and the deputy governor nominee, where many of our members and agents were assaulted, almost mortally, and some still being detained as we speak.

Those still detained include Michael Etu, Gabriel Etu and Mohammed Sani. Also, a Honda Accord vehicle, with registration number FST 868 BC, belonging to one of our stalwarts was destroyed, and is still lying at the voting center.

There is also the widely reported and recorded case of collation center disruption in Oredo local government, by the notorious Osakpamwan Eriyo, who invaded the venue and released shots in the air, chasing away supporters and people, before making away with the results. This happened in the full glare of the Police, DSS, INEC and other security personnel. Interestingly, neither INEC nor the Police showed any concern or any resistance, even as we speak.

It is on record that the level of open financial inducements was unprecedented and indigent voters were being offered between N2,000 and N5,000 to cast their votes, and also forced to display their ballot prints. Numerous videos were posted on social media showing APC members handing out monies to voters, in the full glare of INEC and security officers.

Deliberate connivance with INEC staff to steal materials and results in various wards. We particularly take note of materials stolen at Ologbo, Ikpoba Okha, Nikorogha, Ovia South West, Urhonigbe in Orhionmwon, Udaba in Etsako Central, Opoji in Esan Central and many others.

To put it mildly, Edo 2016 has turned out to be a travesty of our democracy, and it is calamitous that in spite of all the atrocities committed by APC, nothing happened to thugs like Osakpamwan Eriyo who went to George Idah Primary school in Oredo Local government area, to snatch results in the full glare of the Police, SSS and INEC officials. Shooting, chasing and scaring away voters, and even international observers, is nothing short of a bastardisation of our hard earned democracy.

A few days ago, we mentioned in a press statement, that Adams Oshiomole boasted openly, how he had prepared results already for the election, which will be announced, and PDP can go to court. It has been executed today, but the will of Edo people will never be subverted by Adams Oshiomole and his cohorts. We will do everything within the law to claim our mandate. In the words of Plato, the penalty we pay for refusing to participate in politics, and to exercise our right, is that we end up being governed and oppressed by evil men. This impunity must end in Edo State!

Arjen Robben Eager To Sign New Bayern Munich Contract 

Featured Image

Arjen Robben’s father, who acts as his agent, has said the Bayern Munich winger would like to stay at the Bundesliga club.

When asked by German publication Kicker if Robben would sign for just an extra year, Hans Robben said: “I don’t know. We’ll get down to talks and then we will see what the situation is.”  

Referring to Bayern’s role in contract negotiations, he added: “Normally it shouldn’t be a problem, but it takes two to tango.”

Louis van Gaal brought Robben, 32, to Bayern from Real Madrid in 2009, with the Netherlands international going on to win five Bundesliga titles and the Champions League since then.

Robben has suffered his fair share of injuries and has failed to complete more than 60 percent of Bundesliga matches in his seven seasons with the German champions. His best season in terms of steering clear of injury came in 2009-10, when he managed 1,778 out of a possible 3,060 minutes of playing time.

Robben is under contract at the Allianz Arena until the end of the season.​.

Man Killed After Winning Lottery In Festac

Featured Image

A 35-year-old man, Ejike Onyejekwe, has been murdered in the Festac area of Lagos State.

The victim, who lived on 21 Road, K Close Festac town, was stabbed to death a couple of days after winning a lot of money from a lottery. Onyejekwe had bought drinks for his friends to celebrate his winnings and even had a party last Thursday and Friday.

It was learnt that on Friday evening, he was heard arguing with an unidentified person on the phone. He allegedly told his friend he was going to see the man, but never returned.

His corpse was allegedly discovered the next day in one of the estates and was later identified by some of his friends.

A source close to the victim told reporters “The man won a lot of money in a lottery and from last Thursday to Friday, he was asking his friends to drink at his expense. He was called on the phone that Friday evening and he went to meet a man. I suspect that a gang stabbed him and used an object to hit him in the head. There were bruises on his knees and it appeared they dragged him on the floor as well. When the police were removing his corpse, blood was dripping from his mouth and nostrils. He was murdered in cold blood.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos has confirmed the incident, adding that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba. She also said that police had already arrested two suspects.

The chairman of one of the estates reported that at about 7am, he woke up and saw the victim lying lifeless with injuries on his head and body. The corpse was deposited at the Isolo General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy. Two suspects, Suleiman Ahmed and Ibrahim Yusuf, were arrested and the case transferred to the SCIID for further investigation.”

On Monday, at the Spurs media day event, Coach Pop said Duncan could return to the organization anytime. “I told him most people under contract are required to show up for their jobs, and he said he didn’t have a contract, but I told him that I thought we had a verbal contract and I thought that was just as good as written,” Popovich said.

When asked what role Duncan would play, Coach Pop said he doesn’t have an exact title yet. He however said he would be the “coach of whatever he feels like”.

Duncan spent his entire 19-season career with the Spurs, leading them to five NBA championships. He is widely regarded as the greatest power forward of all time.

Wales Manager Chris Coleman ‘Gutted’ For Sam Allardyce

Featured Image

Wales manager Chris Coleman says he is disappointed Sam Allardyce lost the England job for events off the pitch.

In relation to Sam Allardyce, who lost his job as England manager earlier in the week as part of The Daily Telegraph undercover investigation, Coleman said he had only recently attended a Uefa event with the 61-year-old. “I’m really disappointed for Sam. I was with him last week at a coach’s conference in Paris and I know he will be absolutely devastated. I’ve known Sam for a long time and I know how much he wanted the job and how proud he was to get it. So I’m gutted for him that he has lost it through events off the pitch rather than on it.

“I think he would have done a good job. England would probably have qualified for the World Cup and then you are judged as England manager at a tournament, but now he will never have that chance. He has made a mistake and admitted that. It’s a shame that someone of his experience let their guard down for five minutes and lost their job over it.”​

Mario Pasalic Could Return Back To Chelsea

Featured Image

Mario Pasalic could be heading back to Chelsea in January, according to Calciomercato.com.

The Croatian midfielder joined AC Milanon loan in summer but is yet to make an appearance for the Serie A club.

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has given Pasalic no appearance in the league whatsoever, as the Croatian midfielder’s only outing for the club this season was in a friendly against Bournemouth, where he failed to make an impression.

According to Football Italia, the player has dropped down to the bottom of Montella’s hierarchy, as even teenager Manuel Locatelli has surpassed him.

Andrea Bertolacci and Mati Fernandez who are injured at the moment, will also be making Pasalic’s life even harder once they return.

Due to various injury problems, Pasalic hasn’t played in a competitive game since February, and could really use a new location for a fresh loan deal, to get back on his level.​

Emir Sanusi Goes Off On Those Pitching Him Against Buhari

In a statement issued on Thursday morning and made available to Premium Times, the former CBN governor said the quotes “were fabricated and attributed to me to create misunderstanding and disharmony between myself and the President”.

The monarch said:

 “My attention has been drawn to a set of quotes attributed to me attacking the government of General Buhari and his party and praising opposition party, I do not know who is behind these quotes.”

“But they seem to be part of a new and insidious strategy where quotes are attributed to individuals in order to mischievously score cheap political points and plant disaffection between persons.

“These so-called reports never state exactly where my statements were made and in what forum or in whose presence, nor do the faceless cowards behind them have the courage to write their names.”

Mr Sanusi, while urging Nigerians to pay no attention to the quotes, which he described as spurious and maliciously fabricated, stated that it was necessary for him to formally disassociate himself from it.

The Emir added: “It is a well-known fact that I was illegally suspended from my position as CBN Governor precisely because of my role in exposing the massive looting of our national treasury by the last administration, and that I have since shown my total support for the war against corruption being waged by the current administration.

“I am also convinced that everyone recognizes the remarkable improvement in the security situation in the North, the greatest evidence of which was the incident-free celebration of Eid el Kabir throughout the country.”

Carmelo Anthony: Noah Has That Intensity, Knicks Has Been Missing

Featured Image

When you’ve gone up against a player like Joakim Noah for the past nine seasons, you get to know what kind of a player he is.

And Carmelo Anthony is glad to be playing alongside him, believing he brings an intensity alien to the Knicks.

“He brings a different dynamic to the court,” Anthony said after Noah’s first practice with the New York Knicks. “Mentally, he pushes you; he forces you to compete at a high level every time on the basketball court. Everybody. Whether you’re the 14th, 15th man on the team, or myself, or Derrick [Rose] or anybody else.

“Like, he pushes you to go out there and compete every play. If not, you’re going to hear about. I think that’s something we’ve been missing, this team needed, this organization needed and I like it. We like it.”

The Knicks signed Noah to a four-year, $72 million deal over the summer, in part, because of his leadership qualities.

“If you’re not on his team, you’re an enemy,” Anthony said. “I think that mentality, that’s going to kind of trickle down to everybody else. It’s a different mindset that you’ve got to have coming into the game, going into practice. Even in practice, if you’re not on his team, if you’re not on the blue or white team with him, you’re an enemy. That keeps the competitive edge for everybody out there on the court.”

Arsene Wenger Plays Down Reports Linking Him To England Job

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has played down reports linking him with the vacant England manager position but admits he can sing the national anthem.

The Arsenal boss rebuffed the FA’s advances in the summer following Roy Hodgson’s dismissal, but Wembley chiefs are ready to make another beeline for him as they look to appoint a successor for disgraced Sam Allardyce.

After leading the Gunners to a 2-0 Champions League win over Basle at the Emirates on Wednesday night, Wenger was asked if he felt flattered to be linked with the England job and replied: ‘Of course. But my priority has always been this club. Until the end of this season I’m here.’

The Frenchman also admitted that he knows the words to the National Anthem and added: ‘The English game is always full of surprises.’

Gareth Southgate has been placed in interim charge for the next four games, but there is still a significant swell of support for Wenger at the FA.​

EPL Top Clubs Interested In 18-year-old Charlton Defender Ezri Konsa

Charlton are bracing themselves for January offers from the Premier League big guns for their latest hot prospect, 18-year-old defender Ezri Konsa, according to the Daily Mirror.

Interest is mounting for the teenage centre-back after Konsa broke into Russell Slade’s side this season.

And there is set to be a big battle to land the 18 year-old when the transfer window reopens in January.

Representatives from the Premier League’s big guns have been regulars at Charlton’s games this season to watch Konsa.

That group is led by Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Mirror Sport understands numerous scouts attended Charlton’s 1-1 draw with Oldham on Tuesday to again run the rule over Konsa. He is rated at Charlton as just as big a prospect as Joe Gomez, who joined Liverpool for £3.5m last summer.

Konsa joined Charlton as an under-11 and signed a contract last December that expires in 2019.​
