According to Punch, he also frowned at their presence at such a crucial time, describing it as worrisome.

Ize-Iyamu wondered what the Governors were doing in Edo, adding that he expects that the people of the state should be left alone to make their choice.

According to him, there were reports of people trying to falsify and import results during the elections.

The PDP flag-bearer also alleged that the All Progressive Congress (APC) has been using security operatives to harass notable PDP members in Edo state.

Ize-Iyamu said “You know that they have been using security agencies to harass our people, even till last night, trying to arrest them and detain them on very flimsy excuses.

“But we have also spoken to their superiors, who assured us that those who are doing so are doing so on their own and they will call them to order. For now, we are satisfied with that assurance.

“We are also aware that the governors of Lagos and Kaduna states, Ambode and el-Rufai, are also in Benin and this is worrisome because if the security agencies can declare restriction on movement even for those in the state, we are wondering why two governors not from Edo State will relocate to our state.

“We think that the reasons cannot be genuine; we have gone through the period of campaigning and expect that Edo people will be left alone to vote.”

Also, Governor Adams Oshiomhole has alleged that some card readers were stolen from officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
