The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Tuesday counseled the Edo people to vote wisely and defend their votes.
Disclosing this on his facebook handle, the former vice president advised them to vote for Obaseki, who is contesting against the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
His words: “The democracy that we enjoy today was bought at a great price. We can only deepen and sustain it by respecting the sanctity of the ballot and necessary review of our electoral processes.
“As the great people of Edo State go to the polls to elect their governor this weekend, they need to be provided with a secured environment to cast their votes and be assured that their votes will count.
I urge all duly registered voters of conscience and who truly care about the wellbeing of Edo to turn out enmasse to cast and defend their vote for Governor Obaseki. #DemocracyDay2020
