Ojezua noted that: “The election has been generally acclaimed to be peaceful, orderly and transparent. The people of Edo State have made their choice in a very clear and unambiguous manner.”

The APC State chairman however explained that “Our loss at the poll stems from the needless and avoidable crisis foisted on the party by a selfish, insensitive, arrogant and irresponsible leadership.”

“While we begin to take steps to try and salvage the wellbeing of our Party in the state, we call on the Governor to be magnanimous in victory while we urge all the contestants to sheathe their swords and put the elections behind them.
