#Edodecides: Drama,  as KOWA, PDP protest election results,  demand new election

There was drama at the Edo State Governorship collation center, as a KOWA party agent called for the total cancellation of the election.

The man who regarded himself as ” Mechanic of Edo Election ” wants the whole process cancelled,  calling for the conduct of a fresh poll.

In another development, supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are currently protesting outside the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Benin, Edo state capital.

Accusing the electoral body of bias, the protesters demanded a cancellation of the governorship election.


Security personnel have barricaded the INEC headquarters in the state to prevent the protesters from accessing the premises.

One of the protesters said  that they would remain in front of INEC office until the commission met their demand, Cable reports says.

“I voted for Oshiomhole the first time, I voted for him the second time. Enough is enough, let him leave us to make our choice,” a middle-aged man, said.

“We won’t go until INEC allows the true result of this election reflect. This is day light robbery.”

After all efforts to pacify them failed, the security agents released teargas canisters in the air.
