Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has sent urgent and important message to the people of Edo State to be extra vigilant before, during and after the governorship election on Saturday.
The governor also warned the INEC against ‘inconclusive’ election as witnessed in some by-elections in recent time.
Fayose said: “The people should not just vote and go to sleep, they must make sure that their votes count and victory is ensured for Pastor Ize-Iyamu, the PDP’s candidate, whom he described the best among the contenders.
Fayose in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka on Tuesday warned Edo people not make the same mistake Nigerians made last year when when they voted All Progressives Congress (APC) at the federal level.
Fayose said “party sentiment apart, Pastor Ize-Iyamu has campaigned through the nooks and crannies of Edo State to sell his visions and missions to the people of the State and anyone who saw the Channels Television debate on Sunday will agree with me that Pastor Ize-Iyamu is better equipped for the governance of Edo State.”
The governor declared that; “If you believe in me and you are a voter in Edo State, give your vote to Pastor Ize-Iyamu, the man who has demonstrated the required capacity to lead Edo State to prosperity.”
Governor Fayose said Edo people should be vigilant on the election day and make sure that votes are counted and recorded in relevant forms at the polling units, adding that; “the people should know that elections are not concluded until results are announced officially.”
