Edo State Election should not be Inconclusive – Governor Wike Warn INEC

Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, who is the National Chairman of the Edo State Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party and Rivers State Governor, has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission to not declare the Saturday, September 19 governorship election held in Edo state inconclusive.

Wike gave the warning during an interview within the Edo 2020 Situation Room.

We have results from about 2,000 polling units from the various wards and from the intelligence we've gathered, I do believe that INEC will keep to that promise of being transparent.

But we are becoming a bit worried that INEC said they need 700 unit results which isn't correct and that calls for concern. We don’t believe that INEC has only 700. it's more than 2,000 that we have.

Again, as we speak, they ought to have moved to the ward collation centres before they move to the local government collation centres. But we cannot find the security personnel round the ward collation centres and that gives us concern.

They must not allow miscreants to disrupt the electoral process. i think that the commission will continue with what they have done.

Like we've said, we don’t want this election to be inconclusive. this is often the critical stage where you'll see disruptions and then it'll be declared inconclusive. INEC should fulfil its promise that this election will be transparent. We don’t want to listen to inconclusive.” Wike said

In a tweet posted this morning, Wike expressed satisfaction at the result of the results announced thus far . in line with him, the results shows that godfatherism has been kicked out from Edo.

From results trickling in, we've fulfilled our obligations of kicking out godfatherism, First in Rivers, Now Edo, the power truly belongs to the people of Niger Delta, congratulations to my brother @GovernorObaseki and the big @OfficialPDPNig family.''

INEC is currently announcing the results collated from the various wards and local government areas within the state.

The election is essentially between the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki of the PDP and Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC.
