Security operatives had yesterday called on the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, to postpone the election due to plans by insurgents to attack vulnerable state of which Edo State is on the list.

He, however, welcomed the call for postponement but urged INEC, not to postpone the poll for too long.

Declaring that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was ready for the election, he said, “The APC is ready for the election this Saturday, and that was why we held our mega rally on Tuesday and after that rally, our people across the state became more committed, more dogged and ready for the Saturday election.

“I am already preparing to go to my village to also mobilize my people as other party leaders are doing; that is to let you know that we are not relaxing despite the fact that we know the PDP is already dead, and our people are just getting ready for the burial.

“However, security issues are security issues and as regards elections, they are very critical. If on their own they are calling on INEC for postponement, I am sure they must have their reasons because they are experts in it.”
