LG Council Election: Edo State Govt, APC Scared Of PDP

In 2016, the APC led federal government surreptitiously postponed Edo State Governorship election even without consulting the INEC just because it was advised that if elections were to hold as advertised, in a free, fair and transparent manner , APC would be dealt a humiliating defeat.

This was stated in press released signed by Chris OSA Nehikhare, SPS, PDP Edo state and made available to TraceReporter on Sunday.

According to the statement “A few days ago, Edo State Government  in realization of its abysmal failure and imminent rejection by the majority of Edo people, has decided to further interfere in the administration of local government councils in the state.

“Governor Godwin Obaseki through his SSG Osarodion Ogie has sent an executive order to the Edo State House of Assembly, demanding the immediate amendment of some sections of the Law establishing EDSIEC (Edo State Independent Electoral Commission), particularly the reduction of statutory 90 days notice before Local Government elections to a mere 45 days.

“This amendment is not only alarming, it is unacceptable, illegal and unfair. It exposes the intolerance the APC government has for opposition and fear of accountability it must undergo when opposition candidates are elected chairmen of the various councils they have “burgled” in the last 9 years.

“This adjustment amendment in time frame is an attempt to deny other parties time to nominate their candidate, campaign and sell their manifesto to the populace as well as time to examine the candidates APC plans to parade. While the APC state government has secretly chosen February 6th 2018 as the date to conduct the local government election, it has refused to make it public as part of its ploy to deceive the opposition parties and the people of the state.

“It is clear that APC is destroying the democratic ethos.

“We hereby advise this government to reverse this ill thought out policy and always have the welfare and wellbeing of Edo people as its priority, everything needs not be politicized.

Edo people’s welfare is our driving spirit.

PDP… Listening to the cries of Edo People!
