He added that INEC’s virtual portal was increasingly becoming unstable, making it easy for a change of election results.
Ologbondiyan said, “We have also been informed that the INEC Chairman has come under intense pressure from the APC to allow the replacement of results declared in the riverine areas of Edo State in other to jerk up figures for the APC.
“We also have information on plots being undertaken to replace results in Fugar and other adjoining local governments all in Edo North.
“We appeal to the INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, not to fall for this pressure in the interest of the unity and cohesion of our country.
“We have the results as already declared in the various polling units and we urge INEC to confine itself to these results already declared by its officials at the polling units.
“We invite Nigerians to closely monitor results being declared on the INEC virtual portal to ensure the wishes of the people of Edo State are not altered overnight.”
