Edo 2020: PDP's Obaseki Will Massively Defeat APC's Ize-Iyamu

The Action Democratic Party (ADP), has called on the Federal government of Nigeria, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, to ensure that, free and fair elections are conducted both in Edo and Ondo State, to show loyalty and his readiness to leave good legacy to the Nigerian people as he departs power in 2023.

Speaking via a press statement made available to Naijanews through the party’s National publicity Secretary, Prince Adelaja Adeoye , said that, there should be no excuse whatsoever, for the Edo election slated for Saturday September 19th this weekend, across the 18 local government in the State, not to be peaceful.

The party stated that, the expectations of Nigerians, in many of the elections, conducted by this administration, fall short, from the tradition of free and fair elections.

The party said further that, level playing ground should be provided for all candidates participating in the election, so that their own impacts can be felt, without intimidation of any kind.

ADP noted that, it is not a good tradition, where at every election, Nigerians will be afraid to exercise their franchise, because of the fear of violence, “Federal Might”, and other funny political behavior by the government in power, stressed that, the only way the gains of our democracy can be beneficial to both Nigerians and our partners across the world, is when free and fair elections are conducted.

The party commends the United States for slamming sanctions on election riggers, calling on the United Kingdom, European Union, and others, to increase the consequences and sanctions for election riggers in Nigeria.
