Edo Election: Pastor Ize-Iyamu called 400 witnesses to testify against APC


    Over 400 witnesses are expected to testify for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu at the ongoing hearing of the petition against the victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State in the September 28 governorship election.

    Some witnesses who testified before the three-man panel insisted that there were no accreditation before voting at their various polling units.

    The witnesses who were Ward agents of the PDP in Akoko-Edo local government said they used incidence forms after the INEC card reader malfunctioned.

    They said there were over voting in during the elections.

    Those that testified are James Mayaki, Charles Osagbemeh, Richard Olori and Ayeni Sunday.

    During cross examination by Prosecution Counsels, James said he voted even though he was not accredited.

    He said there were no accreditation in Unit 2, 9, 11, 12 and 14 in Ward 2, Akoko-Edo local government.

    Richard told the tribunal that all party agents in Ward 5 signed the unit results and that he examined the pink copies of form EC8A before he handed them over to the party chairman.
