The Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the just concluded governorship election in Edo State has said that God told him to recover his “mandate.”
Ize-Iyamu said this in Benin while addressing some protesters.
He said that the Independent National Electoral Commission “robbed” him and his party, the PDP, when it announced Mr. Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the Edo State governorship election.
He said the alleged robbery of the Edo people’s mandate would not stand, adding that he had been seeking God’s intervention in the past few days.
Ize-Iyamu said his supporters had refused to be violent despite the alleged fake result announced by INEC.
He said it was lamentable that those who were “given the victory by INEC” were ashamed of celebrating the victory.
The state PDP Chairman, Mr. Dan Orbih, said the party was going to put everything in place to defend democracy.
Orbih appealed to protesters to keep the peace while embarking on street protests; adding that the will of the people must prevail. (NAN)
