Edo: What Caused The Peaceful Outcome Of The Election & Federal Might Absence? by Sleevia: 2:33pm On Sep 20, 2020
From all indications, Obaseki has won this election but two things stood out unexpectedly

1. It was generally peaceful

2. There was zero federal might influence.

What do you think is the reason behind this?

I would hazard a guess and I am open to correction.

A: The U.S visa ban restricted federal influence, which Oshiomole, Ganduje and Tinubu were banking on. I was on twitter when I read that order has been given that there should be no interference in the election. This was why, after votes at the PU were done, all security agents, from Army to Police and others LEFT.

B. The Oba of Benin meeting. Before the election, Oba invited both contestants for a meeting where he specifically warned against violence in whatever form. I often read from outsiders that Oba of Benin is just like any oba out there but what majority do not know is the weight the Oba of Benin carries among his people and this election further proved that.

Since the APC took power, this is the most peaceful election we have had...

The question is WHY?

Please join the discussion and I would like to learn from other persons and correct me where you feel I am wrong.

Majorly, the fear of Visa ban is the beginning of free and fair elections.

Our politicians heaven on earth is traveling abroad. And if the US can issue such serious warning, other countries like the UK and EU will follow suit.

Hence, our politicians have to comply in other to apeal the already ban. Lols.

Edo no be Lagos.

Ordinary visa ban is too trivial to stop a desperate Nigerian politician from grabbing power & getting his hands in the public treasury.
Is the US the only country on earth?

God bless President Buhari for giving us the freest, fairest, most peaceful & transparent election since return to democracy.

Congratulations to Obaseki & the PDP.

Truly Edo is not Lagos.

I will summarise the answer as follow.
1. In Edo, the word of the Oba is Supreme. He spoke and we his subjects listened.
2. The fear of the US/UK Visa ban made election riggers to sit up.
3. The people believed that Obaseki was unduelly screened out by Oshiomhole hence protest the votes.
4. Eternal vigilance on the part of PDP by setting up the situation room to monitor results from polling units.
5. EDO people had to prove that power belong to the people
6. EDO NOR BE LAGOS

Take it or leave it, the zero Federal influence is simply to humiliate and demystify both Tinubu and Oshiomole.

Buhari is damn happy at the moment.

BTW, Congrats to the good people of Edo state. You all made it possible.

Who wan chop UK and USA sanction?
The ones sanctioned have been writing countless letters to exempt them.
That's where most of our treasure is siphoned to.

And Edo people were determined like ilorin people last year.

True. The election was so uncharacteristic of APC.
several opinions have been raised, like the warning from foreign powers. APCheat officials wouldn't want a falling out with them, and the FG knew better to keep their hands clean.
Perhaps buhari done weigh things and realize it wasn't worth the stress and effort. The country is broke, VAT, fuel and tariff increase and everything; Nigerians dey vex and fit change am for them if they expel too much funds rigging Edo.
They've rigged far too many elections so far, perhaps they felt this would be one too many.
Besides, APC in Edo weren't all that organized. I guess they struggled to get their shit together.
In summary, the election was peaceful cause APC respected themselves.
And lastly, Edo peeps stayed woke grin

As a Yoruba man, Edo people really won my heart by making a scape goat of Lagos politics in light of godfatherism.

Also, the Oba of Benin has shown himself respectable, not like some Obas that have sold their conscience for a plate of eba and okro in the South West... They will just open their mouth waa and criticise other politicians that are not driving free money into their pockets.

Hopefully, this will serve as the beginning of free and fair elections in Nigeria and foster democracy and development without hindrance from desperate and brutal politicians.

Technology played a great role in this election, I'm talking about the INEC website for result uploading.

Another is the Visa ban, you would have seen the likes of GYB in Edo state and Mr Hell....

I am a yoruba, but I sincerely respect the people of Edo state cos they don’t play with their traditional rulers unlike the way our politicians have turned yoruba Oba’s to yahoo yahoo Oba’s,imagine Tinubu the other day greeting Oni of Ife while sitting down.spits.
