EDO LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION; A SHAM
Yesterday, rerun elections where held in esan north east local government of Edo state that saw the state electorial commitee declare mr oboh as the winner and chairman of the local government. It would be recalled that election have been held twice in this local government and cancelled twice by the commission.
There have been cries from several quaters that the election was perfectly rigged. Report states that,votes were still been counted in esan north east when results were announced from Benin city,the state capital where elections were not held. It was also observed that the results announced at each ward and copies given to the DPO and journalists available,which saw the pdp candidate as the winner differed entirely from the one announced by the electorial commission. The commission declared the apc candidate winner with over eleven thousand votes to pdp's over three thousand votes. Whereas figures at the wards shows pdp won with over eleven thousand votes where apc got over six thousand. Meanwhile,the atmosphere in the area today is tense as protesters have taken to the street. What happened to 'one man,one vote'?
