The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the just concluded Edo governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has called on his supporters to remain calm.

Ize-Iyamu also told his supporters not to cause violence or destroy properties over the result of the elections.

PDP supporters had earlier protested the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) declaration of Godwin Obaseki, the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag-bearer, as winner.

In his statement, Ize-Iyamu said “I appeal to all of us, Edo people who feel dissatisfied, not to take laws into your hands or engage in violent demonstrations or destruction of public property. We still have many options.

“We can go to the elections tribunal. We can call a world press conference to let the world know what transpired or we can leave everything to God.

“No matter how you feel, please conduct yourselves in a civilised manner because the will of God must prevail. If God says I, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, will be governor, no amount of rigging can stop it. So, we must keep hope alive; let us continue to hope and believe in our country.”

International observers who monitored the Edo election on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, said security operatives did not do anything when voters were being bribed with money.
