Make Edo Elections Credible – Wike To Buhari

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has told President Muhammadu Buhari to make Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State credible.

Wike, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Council spoke during a live television programme in Port Harcourt.

A statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, quoted the governor as saying that the outcome of the election would provide hope for 2023 general election.

He said: “Everyone that loves this country should ensure that tomorrow’s election is credible, free and fair.

“The police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should show Nigerians that they can support credible elections.

“INEC should ensure that result sheets are not in the hands of individuals. Security agencies should not whisk away collation officers and later bring them back with cooked results.

“Manipulation of the electoral process causes violence. No politician will cause violence if the police and INEC do not compromise.”

Wike said there would be a high turnout of voters tomorrow because the people were prepared to end ‘godfatherism’.
