Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, says the conduct of the ongoing governorship election in the state is not satisfactory.

 

Obaseki, who spoke after casting his vote, said the Independent National Electoral Commission should have prepared better for the election.

 

He spoke with journalists after voting at Polling Unit 19, Ward 4, Oredo Local Government Area.

 

SATURDAY FLAKES reports that the governor, who is also the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the election, expressed regret that he waited for over one and a half hours in the queue before he could cast his vote because the card reader was slow.

 

Obaseki said, “I expected that INEC would have prepared better for this election. I waited for one and half hours in the queue before exercising my franchise, it’s a bit disappointing.

 

“Given that this is a sole day election, I expected better planning for this election. Card readers were very slow and that’s the situation everywhere.”

 

His Special Adviser on Media, Crusoe Osagie, had earlier alleged that there was manipulation in areas where Obaseki is popular.

Osagie said, “Suddenly card readers are not working in areas where Governor Godwin Obaseki is very popular.

 

“Voters are being disenfranchised and we are constrained to say that this is sabotage.

 

“Specifically, in Oredo Ward 1, Unit 20 and other places where the Governor is clearly popular, the card readers are not working.

 

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should prove to Edo voters that it can conduct a credible election in Edo State.”
