Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied rumours that it is planning to shift the September 19 governorship election in Edo state by two weeks due to logistics issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Already, there is anxiety in Edo as the residents are unsure if the much-anticipated election believed to be a straight fight between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) will proceed as scheduled.

It will be recalled that in 2016, INEC was forced to postpone the governorship election in Edo State by two weeks citing security issues and threat to peaceful conduct of the poll.

However, Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to the INEC chairman in a chat with Daily Independent said there is no iota of truth in the report, saying the September 19 date remains sacrosanct.

He also said all other arrangements for the election such as the stakeholders meeting and the signing of peace accord scheduled to hold next week remains unchanged.

"No, we are not shifting the date. We are, in fact, going to Benin for the Stakeholders’ meeting and the signing of the Peace Accord next week. The election will hold as scheduled on 19th September 2020″ .

Don’t be too sure that Barawo Bubu won’t use his remote control and coNrade Oshi-omo-Ole use the pain of rigging as they did in Osun.
Anyway, I trust Edo people to vote massively for the less bad of the two options and defend their votes. Why would the acid throwing cultist and thief wants a repeat of 1983 Ondo election with NPN’s Omoboriowo?

Re: INEC Denies Plan To Shift Edo Election By Two Weeks by Macsjebs(m): 6:54pm On Sep 07
People already see it as a norm, so won't be surprised, but INEC can do better this type around and prove assumptions wrong

shocked

This Edo election is already done and dusted,inec pls just move over to the next one because we already know ize iyamu is going to be the winner.POi is not even campaigning that much to obaseki because they already know the politics 101 tactics that has been put in place.

I won't be surprised if oshiomhole already has the already written results which inec will call out jejely sitting in his bedroom,for this election Their would be nothing like free and fair,not a single vote will count and only the best rigger will emerge of which ize iyamu will emerge considering federal might factor.

Edolites pls just get ready for the simple Agenda because ize iyamu is your next governor,by the way I heard ize iyamu floored obaseki in the bbc pidgin english debate.

Obaseki will win in online polls while ize iyamu will win the election.
