Few weeks, the Edo September 19th Governorship election, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday alleged that the party have it on good authority of massive printing of Permanent Voters Cards, PVC’s in some homes and offices by the All Progressive Congress, APC Leaders.
The party however was declined to mention the location and names of the APC leaders involved. It however disclosed that security Operatives have being alerted by the party.
The PDP also said that the opposition All Progressive Congress in the state are not ready for the September Governorship election by stocking violence with the sole aim of having the elections postponed.
But the Publicity Secretary of of APC Chris Azebamwan, when contacted, described PDP allegation as a mark of ignorance noting that PDP allegation is an attempt to distract Edo people in order to rigged the September 19th Governorship election.
Addressing a press conference at the PDP campaign Secretariat in Benin City, Edo state, the party’s state publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, however, expressed confidence that the PDP will roundly defeat the APC and it’s candidate.
“We need to alert the general public that we are aware of the criminal printing of PVC’s by APC in some of it offices here in Edo state. Iam saying this not because we are worried that they can use it for elections but because of the criminal aspect of it and the security agencies have been alerted but unfortunately, they are not doing anything about it”.
” We told them the address where this is taking place and the people doing it but nobody have been arrested and that is why we are raising this alarm. They have discovered that they cannot win a free and fair election and they are trying all manners of ways to subvert the will of Edo people. Their intention is to have the election postponed because they know they will be defeated.
“However, we are confident of winning because of the performance of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Azebamwan said: “It is a mark of ignorance for PDP’s Chris Nehikhare to accuse leaders of APC of criminally printing PVCs. Any politician who does that will be wasting his/her time and money, because INEC’s card readers will reject the fake PVCs.
“PDP leaders are trying to distract and deceive Edo people and other Nigerians about their plot to rig the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, but it will be an exercise in futility. Edo residents and other Nigerians should ignore the antics, propaganda, misinformation and disinformation of Chris Nehikhare and other members of PDP.
“PDP leaders want the election to be postponed, because the party is not on the ground in Edo State. They know that APC’s governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is very popular, with huge followership across the 18 LGAs of the state and he will win the September 19, 2020 election with a wide margin, with Godwin Obaseki to experience humiliating defeat.
“So, PDP leaders are preparing the ground for their eventual defeat, in order to be able to accuse APC leaders of rigging the election. No truth or merit in the senseless allegation. Do not forget that PDP’s thugs were responsible for the July 25 gunshots at the palace of Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, and last Thursday’s shootings at Apana in Etsako West LGA of Edo State, but they attempted to blame APC members, in order to cause confusion”.
