The governor said President Muhammadu Buhari was responsible for the plot according to Premium Times for the purpose of giving the All Progressives Congress flagbearer a vantage point against his counterparts.
“I Whahned Nigerians not to elect Buhari because he lacked capacity mentally, morally and intellectually to superintend over any civilised society, now we are all seeing the results. Our economy is in recession and democracy is also in recession!” Mr. Fayose said, according to statement by his aide, Lere Olayinka.
“Apart from the security agencies that they instructed not to provide security for the election, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was under instruction since yesterday (Wednesday) not to release electoral materials to INEC.
“It was just a game by the APC-led federal government to frustrate the people of Edo State from kick-starting the journey of changing the APC one-chance change in Nigeria, but they should realise that the power of the people will always be greater than the power of those in power.
The election was postponed on Thursday by INEC after the police and the State Security Service, SSS, said they could not guarantee security.
