The Edo State Governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 19, 2020 governorship election, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has concluded his ward-to-ward reelection campaign in Edo North Senatorial District, promising to bring an end to godfatherism in the state.
A statement on Sunday said Obaseki made the promise while speaking to party faithful in Ward 7, Etsako West Local Government Area, and called on the people to support him in the fight against godfatherism by voting en masse for the PDP.
He said, “On September 19, 2020, we have to tell them that Edo must move forward and bring an end to godfatherism.”
Obaseki thanked leaders of the party and members of his campaign team for their time and sacrifices throughout the campaign which began two weeks ago.
He also urged the people to defend their votes, promising to resolve the lingering kingship tussle in Afokpella.
The Chairman of the Edo State PDP Campaign Council, Chief Dan Orbih, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure that the people’s votes count in the September 19, 2020 election in the state.

A team of factprint observers covering the Edo governorship election at Orhionmwon Local Government Area have been denied access into the collation centre.
The team arrived at the collation centre at about 1:41 a.m. from different polling units only to be told by security officers that only three observers are allowed to go in.
The officers did not state why only three observers were allowed into the collation centre, nor did they mention those who have been granted access.
“He said he can’t allow any other observer to enter. He insists that our observations ended at the ward collation centre even after showing him our I.D cards as Local Government observers.
“Despite all introductions, we are being denied access,” Junaid Omowumi, the team lead, said.
Ms Owowumi also said the security officers told them their election monitoring ended at the ward level.
At the time of filing this report, Ms Omowumi and her team were still unable to gain access into the centre.
Orhionmwon is the local government of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
This harassment comes amidst allegations from both the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party of attempts by party members to alter the results.
