PDP reacts to Edo election postponement by INEC

The postponement of the Edo governorship election has been greeted with extreme repugnance from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). According to the main opposition party in the state, the postponement of Saturday’s governorship election is illegal and a coup against the people. In a statement by its spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the PDP said the date should be kept sacrosanct. The party stated that there were no tangible reasons to tamper with the election, adding that the postponement is an attempt by the FG and security agencies to buy time for the APC.

The statement said: “The call for the postponement of the election by the top hierarchy of the security agencies predicated on alleged security threat was a less than ingenious attempt to buy time for the APC which is clearly heading for a major electoral catastrophe on Saturday. It is shameful and indeed a major constitutional breach for the security agencies to act in concert with the APC to truncate an election that had been planned for months.  Nigerians were not deceived by the obvious concoctions of the security agencies whose performances during elections have been less than average since the advent of the Buhari administration. “Indeed they have become instruments in the hands of the ruling party to harass, intimidate and punish opponents.”
