BENIN - The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has expressed confidence that he will win the poll.
SUNDAY FLAKES reports that Ize-Iyamu, who cast his vote at 9:30am at Polling Unit 26, Ward 5 in Iguododo community, Orionmhwon Local Government Area, said he would win if the election was as peaceful across the state as it was at his polling unit.
The governorship caniidate, who commended the Independent National Electoral Commission for the conduct of the poll, said, “The accreditation is very easy; I have done that and they gave me the ballot paper. Where the ballot box is placed is covered and that means you can vote with some level of privacy.
“I cannot say that what is happening here is happening all over the state because the communication is not very good.
“I am happy I have been able to vote. I am very confident of winning and I just hope what is happening here is replicated all over the state.”

We also brought canopies to ensure people do not gather in large numbers. I think the process is good and it makes accreditation easy. They put the list of voters on the wall.”
Recall that SUNDAY FLAKES had earlier reported that the National Chairman of the Edo State Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Saturday warned the Independent National Electoral Commission against declaring the governorship election inconclusive.
He said INEC must keep to its promise of a transparent process.
Wike, who noted that the collation of results was the most critical stage, urged security personnel to prevent breaches, adding that the people of the state should defend their votes up to the collation centres.
