Sharing is caring!

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state has, in scathing manner, criticized the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for colluding with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to wrestle power in Edo state. Oshiomhole made the allegation after casting his vote in much debated Saturday election. According to the Governor, INEC and Professor Attahiru Jega are huge embarrassment to the nation threatening not to go to court but to call out the people for resistance in the event that the election was eventually rigged. NigerianEcho monitored Oshiomhole interview on Television Continental Saturday afternoon.

 The PDP has however described Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s condemnation of the governorship election in Edo, while the accreditation process was still on, as hasty and accused the Governor of attempting to destroy the integrity of the election. The Director of Publicity of the PDP in the State, Mr. Okharedia Ihimekpen, who reacted to Oshiomhole’s condemnation of the process, said the governor had seen the writing on the wall and was trying to raise the unnecessary alarm in order to rationalize his eventual defeat at the poll.
Ihimekpen said that Oshiomhole had suddenly realized that “the security and the electoral body are insisting on accreditation of voters whose names are in the voter registers in line with the one man, one vote mantra. The PDP criticized what it termed “frenzied and desperate antics of intimidation and blackmail against the INEC by Governor Oshiomhole.
