DSS call for postponement of Edo polls shocking, bizarre, confusing - PDP | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Peoples Democratic Party has described as “Shocking,  Bizarre, and Confusing” the call by the DSS and the Nigerian police for the postponement of next Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Edo state.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, the spokesman of the party, Pronce Dayo Adeyeye said the party was “taken aback on this advise coming a day after the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari was present at the Mega Rally of its Party, the APC in Benin City which was concluded without any hitch.

“It is on record that INEC recently conducted a ‘hitch free’ Senatorial By-Election in Borno State which is a high-point of insurgency in the Country but the Security Agencies saw no reason to call-off the Election. It is therefore lamentable to hear from these same security agencies that the Election cannot be held in a State where in less than 24 hours, the President and all the APC leaders and members had an uninterrupted Rally”.

“We are calling on the President, Muhammadu Buhari to caution the security agencies and direct them to provide full security, and also to desist doing anything that will jeopardize this forthcoming Gubernatorial Election in Edo State. We are equally counting on INEC not to succumb to this false alarm by acting independently and holding election as scheduled.

“We hope that this advice from the security agencies are not in concert with the APC of having seen the indices of loosing the Edo State Gubernatorial Election to the PDP”.

“Finally, the Party leadership led by Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, CON, call on our members, teeming supporters, other Edo voters and the international community to remain law-abiding while  staying alert on this calculated attempt at scuttling our hard earned democracy”.

  1. Their failed big wigs came to Edo and saw the handwriting on the wall showing that their boy will certainly lose in a free and fair election hence their bumbling Oga must have instigated the call for a postponement in order to fully fortify their rigging machinery in order to defeat the pdp. The average nigerian would not want to hear talk less of voting the evil apc. Apc is northern Muslim party, the DSS and the police are also headed by northern Muslim guys, so the conspiracy is complete. What a shame that Nigeria has tone down to this low.
