Edo Election: Ize-iyamu Contested Against INEC- Fayose by rapistomenka: 3:50pm On Oct 03, 2016
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu contested against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), not the All Progressives Congress (APC), describing the APC victory in the election as “victory only made possible by the use of federal government agencies to subvert the will of the people.”


Fayose
Governor Fayose, who lamented that the win at all cost attitude of the APC was inimical to the sustenance of democracy in the country, said it was sad that instead of the people of Edo State electing their own governor, the APC conspired with INEC to foist its own governor on the people.

Speaking on the outcome of the election through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said it was unfortunate that those whose change was made possible because the then PDP government allowed the people the freedom to make
a choice have now eroded the independence of INEC.

Governor Fayose said: “the stage for the manipulation of the election was set by the use of security agencies to postpone the election, even when there was no single security threat and what was witnessed in Edo State last Wednesday was the execution of the rigging plans perfected after the postponement.”

He said it should be obvious to all lovers of democracy in Nigeria and the international community that the APC led federal government will never allow free and fair election in the country as the PDP and other opposition parties now contest elections against INEC.

He noted that, “the power of the people to choose their governor was completely robbed at gunpoint in Edo State. Unfortunately too, these elements have even murdered the rights of Nigerians to protest against the subversion of their will and it is now obvious that only the
insistence of Nigerians can save democracy in the country.

“Like I have said before, we are already seeing signs of what to come in 2019 and Nigerians should know by now that it will only take their insistence for their votes to count as long as these APC elements remain in power.”

The last time we saw this kind of electoral do or die travesty was when another dictator wore the toga of a democrat.

Once a dictator always a dictator.

This second return of Buhari is a big mistake and a threat to our democracy.

Nigeria is in ruin in less than 12 months of this man's return.

I don't think it is advisable to whine over what has been lost. If truly the election was rigged, the PDP should start gearing itself up to prevent a repeat of this abominable act in Ondo State. The PDP must discover their plans and act accordingly.

It is obvious the election was robbed at gun point

Asking PDP and media not to enter collation centres is Akin to armed robbery

Falsifying security reports to postpone the elections and perfect your rigging after election materials has been released by CBN is also robbery

God will punish Oshiomole in due course!

<<Wrote this in some other thread before.>>

Being in the same boat with the irks of the Igbinedions, Annenihs and under the leprous party of pdp was Ize-iyamu shooting himself in the leg...

Some Nigerians don't seem to understand the situation of things on ground in the state, they see Obaseki's victory as either a foolish choice by Edo citizens despite the economic crunch in the land or it was probably rigged...


1.Was it a foolish choice ?

I can say only time will tell, placing the two figure heads together, Edo feel more comfortable with Obaseki due to the antecedents of those who surrounded Ize-iyamu , persons who impoverished the states during its darkest era. Oshiomhole (APC) made some erroneous decisions along the way during his last tenure, but we feel the impact of his dividends of democracy all around the states deserves continuity as we refused to throw the baby away with the bath water. Lucky's tenure was so bad they'll tell u they can't construct road because of Mermaid or control gully because we need to sacrifice albino yearly to reduce its ravaging impact and now add to it that ize-iyamu was his secretary then and he still feels it is best to associate with him. How sad ?


2. Was it rigged?

There was no ballot box snatching, no activity of thugs election went smoothly except in the case of money-sharing which has always been a recurring decimal in elections across the Country. Both party were culpable of this act and I feel the reason why the Apc engaged in it was as a result of what happened in Edo-South where igbinedion carried out this act to put his daughter up for House of Reps... Apc simply learnt from them and decided to outsmart PDP this time around a case of being beaten at your game.

If Edo election is so criticized even without bloodshed and what have you? what do we call Rivers' election? And as for the votes we heard all over the media were grossly false, even in Places where Apc cleared, some persons were still uploading results of pdp flawless victory. Let's think now.


Ize-iyamu can go to Court but the whole Nigeria Is waiting to see the outcome, with Rivers in mind

You are right Fayose. But, please whom did Kayode Fayemi contest against when your name was on the ballot? I will tell you, Fayemi contested against The Nigerian Army, The Nigerian Police, Snippers, Goatluck Jonathan and INEC. Your name was just put on the ballot. You cannot deny this because the Soldiers and the Policemen that colluded with INEC and Jonathan to rig your election have all confessed and have been sacked.
