Don’t declare Edo state election inconclusive- Governor Wike to INEC

Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, the National Chairman of the Edo State Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party has send strong warning to warned the Independent National Electoral Commission not to declare the Edo state Saturday, September 19 governorship election inconclusive.

Speaking an interview in the Edo 2020 Situation Room, he said;


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

But we are getting a bit worried that INEC said they have 700 unit results which is not correct and that calls for concern. We don’t believe that INEC has only 700. It is 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 around the ward collation centres and that gives us concern.

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

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

He also tweeted this morning;

”From results trickling in, we have 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.”
