SAN FRANCISCO, August 02, (THEWILL) – Governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have said they won’t tolerate rigging in the Edo and Ondo states’ governorship elections holding on September 19 and October 10, 2020 respectively.
The governors reached the decision on Saturday after a virtual meeting of the PDP Governors’ Forum presided over by its Chairman and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal.
They therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to be impartial in the conduct of the two elections.
Other PDP governors who attended the meeting were the Abia State Governor and the forum’s vice-chairman, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu; Ahmadu Fintiri (Adamawa); Senator Bala Mohammed (Bauchi); Prof Ben Ayade (Cross River); Nyesom Wike (Rivers); and Dr Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta).
Others were David Umahi (Ebonyi), who was represented by his deputy, Mr Eric Igwe; Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu); Seyi Makinde (Oyo); Bello Mattawale (Zamfara); and Godwin Obaseki (Edo).
It was the first meeting Obaseki attended with fellow PDP governors since his defection to the party on June 19 after he was disqualified from the primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
