It’s no longer news that the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Godwin Obaseki, has been declared as the winner of the Edo State Governorship election.
However, few hours before the September 19 election, the Chairman of the PDP in Rivers State, Akawor Desmond, had alleged that the hotel where Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, is lodging in Benin, Edo State capital is under siege by over 300 policemen.
The development was condemned by numerous politicians in Nigeria, who described the development as a slap on democracy.
A video has now been spotted on the internet showing the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, questioning the presence of Governor Wike in the state.
Ize-Iyamu could be heard in the video saying, “What is the governor of Rivers State doing in Edo State, the important thing is that there is freedom of association, if you have no business voting here, there is no need to be on the street”.
