The Chairman of the Edo Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Campaign Council and Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has urged Edo people to cast their votes for Governor Godwin Obaseki and equally protect the votes in the Sept. 19 Edo Governorship election.
Igbere TV reports that Governor Wike, who spoke at the flag-off of Governor Obaseki’s campaign for re-election, noted: “The All Progressives Congress (APC), for me, does not have any credible candidate. Also, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, according to the sacked National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, is a thief.”
He thanked Obaseki for his “interest in Edo people” which he said made him “fight godfatherism in the state to a standstill.”
“Don’t allow your votes to be rigged as APC believes in rigging. I want to assure you this time that this election will be difficult to rig. South-South is for PDP and Edo belongs to PDP. Edo people should not allow Edo to be rigged. I urge you to defend your votes and ensure Obaseki is returned for a second term to continue his good works in the state,” he added.
