The Chairman of Daar Communications, owners of AIT and Raypower, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi has described the postponement of the governorship election in Edo State by the Independent National Electoral Commission as a shame.
Dokpesi who is also an aspirant for the position of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said by postponing the election, INEC has only succeeded in postponing his party’s victory and the inevitable defeat of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
In a statement issued by Dokpesi Campaign Organisation media aide, Omor Bazuaye, Dokpesi stated: “It is a shame that once again Nigerians are being subjected to this kind of gross impunity and flagrant abuse of power that is currently being exhibited.
“Dokpesi received information about the postponement just as he led a last-minute campaign for candidate of PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in Etsako East, taking the campaign and the message of a better future from his own ward one deep into zone four.
“Dokpesi said what INEC had done was to postpone PDP’s victory at the polls and delay the inevitable defeat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
“He said no matter how many times and how long INEC postpones the election, the people in his Etsako East have rejected APC and have made up their minds to vote PDP.”
