JUST IN: What will Happen if I lose Edo Election


Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has revealed what he intends to do should he lose the keenly contested Edo state Gubernatorial Elections.

Obaseki, after a meeting with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Monday said that he would accept defeat should he lose the elections.

He told Journalists in Abuja: “First, if you have been watching you will see that the election is almost a no contest because we can’t even find the opposition party in the field. So, the issue of me losing is very, very remote, except something miracles happens.”

“If I lose in a fair contest, as a democrat, I will accept it. But, from what we know today and from evidence of what is available, Edo people have spoken and we just want an opportunity for them to express their views on that day. So, our concern is that people be allowed to vote peacefully and express themselves the way decide.”
