JUST IN: I’m disappointed in INEC, says Obaseki

Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, has expressed disappointment over the conduct of the governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Speaking with journalists after casting his ballot at polling unit 19, ward 4, Oredo local government area of the state, the governor said he spent over one hour in the queue because the card reader was slow.

The governor said he expected a better planning by the electoral commission.

“I expected that INEC would have prepare better for this election. I waited for one and half hours on the queue before exercising my franchise, it’s a beat disappointing,” he said.

“Giving that this is a sole day election, I expected a better planning for this election. Card readers were very slow and that’s the situation everywhere.”

Earlier, Crusoe Osagie, special adviser to the governor on media, alleged that there is a deliberate election manipulation in areas where Obaseki is popular.

“Suddenly card readers are not working in areas where Governor Godwin Obaseki is very popular.
Voters are being disenfranchised and we are constrained to say that this is sabotage,” he said in a statement.

“Specifically, in Oredo Ward 1, Unit 20 and other places where the Governor is clearly popular, the card readers are not working.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should prove to Edo voters that it can conduct a credible election in Edo State.”  (The Cable)
