The supporters of the two aspirants insisted that their candidates won the primary and should be declared.

Towoju was of the view that any attempt to manipulate the result to edge Yaman out would be resisted.

“All we are saying is that they should announce the results as received from the voting centers without any manipulation.

“Members of APC in Kwara have spoken with one voice and have elected the candidate of their choice, so the mandate should be respected,” hesaid.

Another chieftain of the party, Alhaji Umar Aiyelabegan said any attempt to tamper with the result would be resisted by all legal means.
