…cautions INEC, security agencies
Former Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki has called on voters in the 2020 Edo State governorship election to protect their votes adding that the process is at a crucial stage at the moment.
He also cautioned INEC and security officials against thwarting the process, asking them to place the country’s glory above the ego of any politician.
Saraki said: ”The on-going #EdoDecides2020 is getting to the crucial stages. I urge the good people of Edo State not to get carried away but to protect their votes.
“The enthusiasm and patriotic conduct of the good people of Edo State must not be thwarted or subverted by any @inecnigeria official, either permanent or ad-hoc; or any security personnel, no matter the rank.
“Nigeria’s glory is more important than the huge ego of politicians. And so @inecnigeria and security officials must work to protect Nigeria’s image and not to satisfy the whims and caprices of some power-hungry politicians.”
The two major contenders in the Edo State epic governorship election are the incumbent governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
