Edo guber poll must not clash with Oba’s coronation – Oshiomhole




Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has kicked against the postponement of the state governorship election for two weeks or more.

Oshiomhole said the election could be postponed for one week because of the planned coronation of the Oba of Benin slated for September 26.
Speaking on a television programme on Thursday, the governor said the Oba’s coronation is a big event in Edo State.
He said, “We have a big event in Edo on September 26 which is the Oba’s coronation. Before that day, there are other events that must be done. It will not be proper to hold election during that period.
“Why not postpone the election for one week?”
On whether the All Progress Congress (APC) was afraid of defeat, Oshiomhole said the APC defeated the PDP in 16 local government areas in the last election held in the state.
He said his party was ready for the election, adding that Edo is not a war zone.
He added: “We will win the election. The PDP has no credibility in this state.”
