Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Edo State, Mr Dan Orbih, has accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole of masterminding the postponement of the governorship election in the state.


Orbih made the allegation at a news conference at the party’s secretariat on Wednesday, in Benin.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on Thursday announced the rescheduling of the election from Sept. 10 to Sept. 28.

It had explained that the shift was in compliance with security alert from the Police and Department of State Service , DSS.

Orbih alleged that Oshiomohole colluded with Gov. Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State and a female staff of the INEC to postpone the election.

He said that the postponement was to enable the governor and the All Progressives Congress, APC, to perfect “their evil plans of buying Permanent Voters Card, PVCs, across the 18 Local Government Area of the state’’.

According to him, Oshiomhole called for postponement to enable him manipulate the card reader.

“Oshiomhole has also perfected some plans to use the police to arrest PDP leaders in the state, especially those he recently attacked with thugs for refusing his car gifts.

“He has invited militants from neighbouring state and lodged them in various hotels ahead of the rescheduled election,” the chairman alleged.

He therefore called on the security agencies in the state to up their game ahead of the Sept. 28 gubernatorial election.

He also appealed to INEC, “as an independent body, not to be used by some desperate politicians to rig the election”.
