THE Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Council for Edo State governorship election, Nyesom Wike, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a free, fair and acceptable election.
Wike who is also, the Governor of Rivers State, spoke in a televised programme in Port Harcourt, a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, said.
“Everyone that loves this country should ensure that tomorrow’s election is credible, free and fair.
“The police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should show Nigerians that they can support credible elections.
“INEC should ensure that result sheets are not in the hands of individuals. Security agencies should not whisk away collation officers and later bring them back with cooked results.
“Manipulation of the electoral process causes violence. No politician will cause violence if the police and INEC do not compromise.”
“The agenda of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is to win at all cost, for us to go to the tribunal.
“This is why Edo people must be vigilant.
“I hail the United States and the United Kingdom for the visa ban placed on election riggers.
“They should publish their names so that a lot of things will change in our electoral process.
“Election rigging is worse than armed robbery; so, whatever sanctions that can be imposed will be welcomed by the PDP,” Wike said.
