Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, declared on Wednesday that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is “over prepared” for Saturday’s governorship election and appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to postpone the “ final burial” of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for too long.”
He said, “The APC is ready for the election this Saturday and that was why we held our mega rally on Tuesday and after that rally our people across the state became more committed, more dogged and ready for the Saturday election.
“I am already preparing to go to my village to also mobilize my people as other party leaders are doing, that is to let you know that we are not relaxing despite the fact that we know the PDP is already dead and our people are just getting ready for the burial.
“However, security issues are security issues and as regards elections they are very critical. If on their own they are calling on INEC for postponement, I am sure they must have their reasons because they are experts in it. If you recall, we raise the alarm that the PDP had planned to import thugs from neighbouring states to help them unleash mayhem on our people because they are not prepared for the election.
“They have not been campaigning because they have no message rather they imported thugs into the state. But I wish the election will go on so that security agents will pick them up and expose them. So if security agents are raising this same alarm, I will not be surprised. I am aware some of my colleagues in the South -south threatened that they will deal with me in Edo because I went against former President Jonathan.
