Charles Aniagwu, the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign and Delta State Commissioner for Information, has told the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, to accept defeat and congratulate PDP’s Sheriff Oborevwori for his victory in last Saturday’s election.
Aniagwu stated this in a statement following Oborevwori’s victory over Omo-Agege on Monday.
Recall that Oborevwori was declared the winner of Saturday’s gubernatorial election on Monday.
Oborevwori scored 360,234 votes to beat his closest rival of the APC, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, who got 240,229 and the Labour Party candidate, Ken Pela, who polled 48,047 votes.
Aniagwu’s statement read in part, “The APC has won 6 State Constituencies cannot turn around to describe the election as non-complying with the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 as amended.
“We, therefore, call on the APC Governorship Candidate and Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, to do the needful expected of democrats and call on his brother, the PDP Governorship Candidate, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori to congratulate him on his well-deserved victory at the polls.”
