Adams-Oshiomhole

Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has expressed surprise at the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the state’s governorship election earlier slated for Saturday, September 10, 2016.

INEC on Thursday afternoon announced this decision after it had earlier said that it would go ahead with the polls.

Governor Oshiomhole while speaking to Channels Television described the decision as a set back for the state.

He frowned at the time it took the electoral body to make the decision, which he said affects the parties’ programmes.

He said that if INEC had given the hint earlier that the election would be postponed, the All Progressives Congress (APC) would have also postponed its final rally to suit the new election date.
