Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of working towards the postponement of the September 19, 2020 Governorship election in the State.
Obaseki who is the Candidate of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) in the election made the allegation at an interactive session with journalists on Sunday.
He alleged that the opposition party in the State has began to “put fear and prevent the electorate from exercising their franchise, cause violence and create the impression that Edo State such that the federal Government could declare a State of emergency and postpone the election”.
According to him, “we will continue to appeal to the federal Government. We do not have the police and Army.
“When they (members of opposition) come out, they behave so lawlessly as if they is no law.
“The opposition party today understands how difficult it is for them to win election, rather than trying to persuade people, they engage in all kinds of vicious propaganda.
“They want to cause violence and anarchy so that the election will be postponed.
“We appeal to opposition party to allow peace rain in the land.
“We are in Government. If they want to come in, they should do what the people want”, he said.
