Edo PDP laments shift in election dates
• ‘We Have No Confidence In INEC’
In Edo State, some residents who spoke to The Guardian said the postponement had affected their normal daily activities, as they had dedicated the day to voting for candidates of their choice.
Public places, including churches, event centres, markets and major roads in the state were devoid of human and vehicular activities.
Meanwhile, the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the postponement “is a grand plan to fill in fictitious figures for Buhari.”
A statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Nehikhare said, “ You will recall that on February 11, 2019, Edo PDP raised the alarm that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in collaboration with All Progressives Congress (APC) was planning to sabotage the elections, blaming it on logistics.
“It’s 7.00pm on the eve of the presidential and National Assembly election materials, including result sheets for presidential and National Assembly for Edo are not available. PDP, therefore, calls on Nigerians and the international community to condemn this act and prevail on the Federal Government to organise free, fair and transparent elections devoid of government intimidation and harassment.”
