The Speaker of the Ekiti state House of Assembly, Hon. (Pastor) Kola Oluwawole, has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Federal Government cannot stop the will of God and the people of Edo state.

This is coming on the heels of the postponement of the Edo governorship election by INEC to September 28, 2016.

The Department of State Services (DSS) and the Nigerian Police force issued a statement, warning the election body of an impending terror attack in Edo state.

According to Punch, Oluwawole said “The righteous is as bold as a lion, but the unrighteous runs while no one is pursuing him. Nigeria is right now in a regime of inconclusive everything.

“There have been a lot of inconclusive elections since the APC took over the mantle of rulership.

“This is another strategy to rig election. They know they have failed already. Some hours before the postponement, INEC emphatically said it was ready, but it later bowed to their pressure.

“They cannot change the will of God and the will of Edo people. Edo people have made up

their minds. In a democratic system, we should allow the will of the people to prevail.”

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also described the postponement of the Edo elections as a coup.
