Edo Election: PDP candidate Ize Iyamu to lead 100-Day protest across Benin | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Centre for Patriotic Leadership Initiative (CPL) has said it will start a 100-day protest action in Edo State.

The action, the CPL said, was intended to show its members’ displeasure with the outcome of last week’s gubernatorial election in Edo State.

The protest, tagged: “Mother of Series of Protests,” Eronmosele said that they would protest on the streets against impunity, illegality and electoral fraud by the INEC, APC, security operatives and Governor Adams Oshiomhole who, he alleged, collectively subverted the people’s mandate freely given to the PDP candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

The coordinator of the group, Mr Saint Moses Eronmosele, said that the planned protest, scheduled to start on Friday, would be led by the defeated candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 28 governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

He said that they were unsatisfied with the result declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which favoured candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Godwin Obaseki.

He said that the protest would also witness presence of the chairman of the PDP in the state, Chief Dan Orbih.

“We have the permission of the law to protest against perceived wrongs because, where there is a wrong there has to be a remedy,” he said.
