Edo Elections: PDP Kicks As Security Men Lay Siege To Hotel Where Wike Is Lodging

 

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Inspector General of Police to order his men laying siege at the hotel where Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is lodging in Benin City, Edo state capital ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.

The national leadership of the party, in a press conference addressed by the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, alerted the nation and the international community of the security siege on PDP governors in their lodging in Benin City.

The party expressed shock that security agents were detailed to surround the lodging of our governors to harass and intimidate them, whereas APC governors, including the governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, his Imo state counterpart, Hope Uzodimma as well Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, are left free in the comfort of the residence of the sacked national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole in GRA, Benin City.

The party consided the siege as provocative and completely unacceptable as there cannot be two sets of laws for the citizens of our nation. In as much as the APC governors given the liberty to stay in Benin City, ed or stampeded to leave the state.

At any rate, we are confident that our governors will not allow themselves to be stampeded.

PDP called on all stakeholders in the Edo governorship election, particularly the security agencies, to work towards a peaceful, credible, transparent, free and fair election on Saturday.
