Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has tasked the voting public in the state with defending their votes come September 19, 2020, lest ”they will manipulate the results.”
He said this yesterday while addressing supporters in Ward 6, Ukhuse in the Owan West Local Government Area of the state, during his reelection campaign rally in the LGA.
Obaseki said they should ignore any instruction to leave the polling units after casting their votes, so as not to allow for votes manipulation.
The Peoples Democratic Party’s gubernatorial candidate said, “On September 19, 2020, come out and vote massively for the PDP and make sure you stay back in your polling units to defend your vote to avoid manipulation.
“Don’t listen to them when they ask you to go home or even threaten you. If you obey them, they will manipulate the results.
“My coming to Ukhuse is homecoming; Four years ago, I couldn’t get to you people because of the bad road, but I made sure I constructed the road for easy transportation. Now you can move your commodities to the market and the next village for sales.
“The development of Edo is in your hands. Come out with your Permanent Voters Cards and vote for the PDP and I will make sure I keep all my promises to you all.”
Obaseki will be going up against the All Progressives Congress’ Osagie Ize-Iyamu as favourites for victory at the polls come September 19.
