Gov.Adams Oshiomhole bemoans poor handling of voters accreditation

Posted: July 14, 2012 in General

Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has expressed resentment over INEC’s handling of accreditation of voters in Oredo local government area. He lashed out at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for attempting to subvert the governorship poll of today.
In particular, Oshiomole stated to press: “Any attempt to declare a fraudulent result will be the beginning of the end. I called Jega one and half months ago and complained of plots to manipulate results. He kept reassuring me. There are areas in Oredo where over 500 registered and materials did not arrive until 12 noon when accreditation ought to have ended. Now the materials arrived late, and they stopped accreditation at 1pm. It means only 10 per cent of the people will vote for me. This is very shameful. This is only one state, and INEC is wobbling. It is a shame. I told Jega he cannot vouch for his lieutenants. At Oredo only 200 on the list and only 50 accredited. From INEC office is 10 minutes drive to the polling booths but they keep saying materials arrived ate.”
Elsewhere in the state, ChannelsTV reports that a boat carrying election materials capsized on the Ethiope river  killing two police officers.
Also at the voting center encompassing unit 18, 19, 20 and 21 where the PDP candidate was earlier accredited today voters have become agitated and disorderly holding the electoral officers there hostage over registration irregularities of voters.
