A candidate for the National Chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Raymond Dokpesi has kicked against ponement of the Edo State governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
In a statement by Omor Bazuaye of the Raymond Dokpesi Campaign Organisation, Dokpesi said it was a shame that once again Nigerians were subjected to such gross impunity and flagrant abuse of power that was currently being exhibited.
Dokpesi said he received information as he led a last minute campaign for the candidate of the PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in Etsako East, taking the campaign and the message of a better future from his own Ward 1 deep into Zone 4.
Dokpesi said “what INEC had done was to postpone PDP’s victory at the polls and delay the inevitable defeat of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state.”
He said no matter how many times and how long INEC postponed the election, the people in his Etsako East had rejected APC and had made up their minds to vote the PDP.
