The Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to ensure that the forthcoming September 19 Governorship Election in Edo State is free, fair and credible.
“We admonish all organs of state such as the security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission, to ensure a free and fair election in Edo state in September,” CID Maduabum, the Director General of the PDP Governors Forum, said.
He stated this while congratulating Governor Godwin Obaseki for his emergence as the candidate of the PDP.
“We urge Nigerians and the civil society to be vigilant to ensure that all votes are counted and that all votes count in Edo State in September.”
Obaseki of the PDP would be facing Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the forthcoming election.
