Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned the Delta All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, for describing the victory of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as a victory obtained from ballot box snatching and other electoral irregularities.

In various media campaigns, Emerhor’s media aide, Fred Latimore, had blasted the PDP and Independent National Electoral Commision ( INEC) for working against the wishes of the people of Delta, whom he alleged voted for the APC candidate but the PDP and INEC, he further alleged, plotted the failure of O’tega through various malpractices.

The party claimed that Emerhor had said the PDP knew it would lose the election if it were conducted on a free and fair basis, hence, he alleged that the PDP resorted to underground scheming to make way for its candidate to emerge victorious.

But in a statement issued by the PDP Delta State Chairman, Edwin Uzor, the party said the report credited to Emerhor lacked merit and was only a figment of the imagination of Emerhor who should rather be nursing the wound of his total rejection by the people of Delta State than engaging in frivolous allegations which would pay him no electoral dividend.

The Party Chairman described Emerhor as a drowning man, hence the statement was a product of such persons.

“It would amount to wishful thinking of Olorogun Emerhor to expect that the APC would win in Delta State where he is totally unknown, accounting for his party not winning even in his local government area in the state.

“The PDP maintained its stronghold of South-South, winning in all the states in the region where elections held and Delta, home of PDP, could not have been an exception.

“We make bold to say that the 2015 governorship election was generally peaceful, free and fair with the deployment of the card reader device by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which made rigging difficult,” the chairman said.
