The postponement of the gubernatorial election in Edo State from the 10th till the 23rd of September has attracted a negative reaction from the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose who has indicted President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The verbose Governor who has overtime proven to be a sworn-critic of Buhari described the postponement of the Edo State governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a very bad signal and the “beginning of the end for democracy in Nigeria”.
Mr. Fayose said “it is obvious that the All Progressives Congress (APC) feared that it can’t win the election and is ready to employ whatever crude means to subvert the wish of the people”.

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.
