Edo Govt Condemns Attack At CVR Center In Idia College, Accuses APC Thugs by Aisosa25: 7:04pm On May 29
Edo govt condemns attack at CVR center in Idia College, accuses APC thugs of plot to obstruct, disrupt process

The attention of the Edo State Government has been drawn to deliberate attempts by the State’s Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stir violence and cause crisis in the State, in a desperate move to halt the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The State Government strongly condemns the recent attack and shooting at Idia College a couple of days ago, which led to the injury of an innocent student.

To say the least, this is most troubling, disheartening, and shameful and is never a way to play the opposition role expected of a responsible opposition party.

It is utterly appalling that a political party would resort to attacking a CVR center to obstruct eligible voters from registering to participate in an election that they are contesting. One is left to wonder how the APC plans to get the electorate to vote for their candidate.

We say no to such shenanigans and resort to violence by the APC and their agents and call on security agencies to rein in these agents of violence.

We thank God there was no loss of life from the reprehensible act and are therefore warning the APC to desist from this dishonorable conduct and rather embrace democratic norms.

If the APC really has a candidate to sell and believes in the viability and credibility of their candidate, they should get more people to register and should also campaign to convince the people to vote for him instead of resorting to attacking Edo people and disrupting the peace in the State.

We urge all Edo people not to be discouraged by the desperate antics of the APC and their agents but leverage the opportunity of the CVR exercise to register for their Permanent Voters Card s (PCVs) and participate in the September 21 gubernatorial election with a determination to collectively work towards a free, fair, and violence-free electoral process.

APC and using of thugs are like bread and butter.

Once APC discover that there is nobody they can call Omo ibo or IPOB in their campaign they will change to their other strategy which is violence. grin

Shame on the APC for trying to obstruct the democratic process and resorting to violence. Edo people will not be intimidated, we will register and vote for a peaceful future with Gov. Godwin Obaseki!

The APC is truly showing their true colors as a desperate and violent opposition party, but the people of Edo will not be deterred from exercising their right to vote in the upcoming elections. Keep up the good work, Edo State Government, in standing
