National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has warned that Edo election may be the last held in the country should anyone rigged it.
Secondus who gave the warning on Monday in Benin at the campaign grand finale for the PDP governorship candidate, noted that “if security agencies failed to fulfill their promise of being non-partisan, Edo election may be the last in Nigeria.
He said, “Security agencies made promise. We want to see if they will fulfill their promises. If they fail to fulfill their promises, their might not be election again in Nigeria. It should be one man one vote.”
The National Chairman who lamented that Nigeria democracy is sitting on gunpowder because of rigging, called on world powers to prevail on election riggers in the country.
“I have a special message for the Federal Government. The Edo election is a special election. the entire world is interested in Edo election. The America government is putting everything in place to curb election rigging in Nigeria.
“Nigeria democracy is sitting on the keg of gunpowder because of rigging. Rigging must stop here in Edo, if not, it will be difficult to carry on election in Nigeria,” he said.
While calling on Edo people to vote for Obaseki because of his excellent performance, Secondus said the best punishment for APC and its leaders is to vote for the PDP.
“Punish APC, punish Oshiomhole by voting for Obaseki on Saturday,” he added.
On his part, chairman, PDP Governors’ Forum and governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambual urged Edo people not to sell their votes but should stand by it after voting.
“Don’t sell your freedom; don’t sell your vote; don’t allow one man to come from nowhere to buy you over. Vote for the PDP and protect your vote. Protect your integrity,” Tambual said.
The PDP governorship candidate, Godwin Obaseki, on his part said 100 groups in the state have endorsed him, hence he is optimistic he was going to win.
While thanking Edo people for standing with him in the fight against godfatherism, Obaseki called on the people to use their PVC to bury godfatherism on the September 19 governorship election.
Also speaking, Nyesom Wike, Rivers State governor, urged Edo people to vote for the PDP and protect their votes after voting.
PDP governors from the South-South, Oyo, Abia, senators both serving and former, House of Representatives members and other PDP chieftains in the country graced the campaign grand finale.
