Peoples Democratic Party candidate at the recently held Edo Governorship election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has said he has been instructed by God to recover his stolen mandate.
In a report by TheCable, Ize-Iyamu, who reportedly joined the protest against the Edo governorship election on Friday, October, 7, 2016 addressed protesters in Benin, capital of the state saying the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) robbed him of victory.
The Governorship candidate maintained that the alleged robbery of the Edo people’s mandate is obvious as he had been seeking God’s intervention in the past few days.
He further said his supporters had refused to be violent, saying the opposition party's victory by INEC couldn't be celebrated in Edo State.
On Thursday, October 6, 2016, the INEC presented the certificate of return to Godiwn Obaseki of the All progressive Congress as the winner of the State's governorship election,
