INEC Postpones Edo Governorship Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) has postponed the Edo state governorship election earlier scheduled for Saturday, September 10 to September 28.

The postponement was disclosed by INEC commissioner -in-charge of voter education and publicity, Solomon Soyebi, after a press briefing in the commission office in Benin.

He said the postponement came as a result of the DSS call to postpone the election due to security reasons.

Reacting to the postponement, the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose described it as a bad signal and  beginning of the
end for democracy in Nigeria adding that “it is obvious that the All Progressives Congress (APC) feared that it can’t win the election and
is ready to employ whatever crude means to subvert the wish of the people.”

Godwin Obaseki , All Progressives Congress (APC) and Ize Iyamu  of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) are the two front runners in the election
