Presidential Poll: Obaseki Distances Himself From Electoral Violence In Edo

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, does not vote in Idia College, where the presidential and national assembly elections voting process was disrupted earlier today by suspected hoodlums.

This is according to a statement issued by Special Adviser to the Governor on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, and made available to metrowatchxtra, on Saturday, in Benin City.

He described the report alleging that Obaseki was at Idia College where voting exercise was disrupted as “false and malicious”, noting that the governor does not vote there.

“The governor cast his vote in Emokpae Model Primary School, along Mission Road, and returned to his home afterwards. Idia College is along Iyaro, in Benin City, a totally different location,” Osagie said.

He maintained that the report alleging the contrary is malicious and, therefore, should be disregarded by the public.

“The governor is committed to peaceful, free and credible conduct of the polls in Edo State and does not condone violent conduct anywhere,” the statement added.
