The APC Media Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship election has accused the PDP of colluding with a senior INEC staff, Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, to rig the Sept. 19 election in the state “having failed to convince the people to overlook the failure of its candidate and incumbent Governor of the State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
According to the party in a statement Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, who recently quietly retired as INEC’s Director of Voter Education, is a first-cousin to Governor Godwin Obaseki and has been identified in a plot to trade sensitive inside information on the results collation process of the electoral body with the PDP in exchange for unnamed benefits.
The party alleged that Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi had initially refused to bow out of INEC despite the expiration of his tenure at the electoral commission but was forced out following the revelation of his strong ties with the Edo Governor and his secret plot to stay put at the commission to gain access to sensitive information on the Edo election.
Nonetheless, the APC says Governor Godwin Obaseki has discreetly named Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi as a private consultant in his re-election campaign with a mandate to provide tactics and strategies, using his experience at INEC, on ways to manipulate the election and substitute real results obtained at the polling units with fake results pre-written in the Edo State Government House.
In a statement released on Sunday, the party said “As an upgrade to the server scam that failed the PDP in the 2019 General Election because it ignorantly went with the fraud without insight on the result collation process of INEC, the party of tax-collectors, having lost all hopes of winning the Edo election in a fair contest, are concluding plans on another rigging strategy with the recent secret conscription of one Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi.”
“Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, Obaseki’s first-cousin who served for many years at INEC and had to be forced out of Commission despite his stalling tactics to stay put until the conclusion of the election which he had planned to manipulate by offering sensitive inside information to his cousin, has now fully joined the Obaseki campaign, though secretly as a private consultant.”
“His mandate, and those of others assigned to serve as his aides in the secret location where has been lodged, is to develop strategies and tactics for the party on how to substitute results obtained at the polls with fake, pre-written ballots and a corresponding reflection of the electoral fraud in any electronic transfer, using his experience at the Commission.”
“We have been reliably told by numerous sources at the Commission of Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi’s strange enthusiasm and stubborn insistence to be a part of every meeting held at INEC, even sensitive ones outside the remit of his former position as Voter Education Director, before an internal disquiet at the Commission left him with no other choice but to tender his resignation.”
The party called on INEC to strengthen its infrastructure for the election against potential saboteurs like Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, while also urging the PDP to accept its looming defeat in good fate and as deserved consequences for the failure of its embattled candidate, instead of dabbling into actions that could attract criminal prosecution and imprisonment.

A team of factprint observers covering the Edo governorship election at Orhionmwon Local Government Area have been denied access into the collation centre.
The team arrived at the collation centre at about 1:41 a.m. from different polling units only to be told by security officers that only three observers are allowed to go in.
The officers did not state why only three observers were allowed into the collation centre, nor did they mention those who have been granted access.
“He said he can’t allow any other observer to enter. He insists that our observations ended at the ward collation centre even after showing him our I.D cards as Local Government observers.
“Despite all introductions, we are being denied access,” Junaid Omowumi, the team lead, said.
Ms Owowumi also said the security officers told them their election monitoring ended at the ward level.
At the time of filing this report, Ms Omowumi and her team were still unable to gain access into the centre.
Orhionmwon is the local government of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
This harassment comes amidst allegations from both the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party of attempts by party members to alter the results.
