Edo 2020: Wike, Obi, others storm Benin for PDP rally
Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State including the Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi were among the dignitaries that graced the final rally for the re-election bid of Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
The governors, in their separate speeches, charged the electorate to vote and protect their votes.
Wike, said governor Obaseki has done his best in going round the 192 wards to solicit for their votes and that the large number of persons that have turned out at the rally was a clear attestation that he has done what he needed to do adding that going by the number of persons at the rally, the governor has already won the election and that the electorate must compel the Independent National Electoral Commission to announce the election result in his favour.
On his part, Tambuwal said the people of the state must rise up to protect their votes and should not be intimidated or allowed themselves to be enticed by money so as to sell their votes.
“I hear that somebody is coming here with a bullion van. Do not sell your vote. Do not be intimidated, vote and let it be counted. Vote for continuity”, he said.
Okowa of Delta State commended the state governor for his zealousness in taking his campaigns round the 192 wards, a feat that has not been done in the country.[NewsNaira]
