    Edo poll: Peters Omoragbon, NCP governorship candidate speaks on Obaseki’s victory

    The National Conscience Party (NCP) governorship candidate in Edo 2016, Pastor Peters Omoragbon, said the flaws during the election were not strong enough to cancel the exercise.

    In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, Omoragbon said that the election was one of the best conducted so far in the country.

    He said that those calling for the cancellation of the exercise were doing so in bad faith.

    ''The last Edo governorship election is one of the best done so far in Nigeria. The exercise was devoid of killings and fighting.
    '' We have witnessed other elections, including common local government election in some states, people were killed or kidnapped. No single soul was lost to Edo election.

    ''During campaigns and election, I and my supporters did not receive any threat from other party members.

    ''There were some flaws though, but not strong enough to cancel the election. I give INEC 96 percent for performance. Those calling for cancellation are doing so because they lost.

    ''If APC had lost the election, they will cry foul also and call for cancellation. I and my supporters were on ground, the election was free and fare,'' Omoragbon said.

    He congratulates the Governor-Elect, Mr Godwin Obaseki, urging him to form an all inclusive government with the best Edolites from all groups.
    The NCP candidate advised Obaseki against the spirit of winner's takes it all, stressing that he was elected by Edo people and not his political party.

    ''Obaseki has won the election; he should carry out all his campaign promises. His victory is for Edo people,' he noted.
    Omoragbon said that Edo election came in as a role model to other states, urging the losers to join hands in building the state.

    ''Any aggrieved persons should go to court. Election to serve the people should not be a do or die affair.

    ''Political party in power should encourage their members in authority to give dividend of democracy to the electorates,'' he advised.
    Corroborating Omoragbon on the election in separate interview, the National Chairman of NCP, Mallam Yunusa Tanko said the party was satisfied with the conduct of the election.

    Tanko said they were happy as the exercise was crises free, stressing that the party accept the result of the election.
    ''There was orderliness in Edo governorship election. For us in NCP, we are satisfied with the outcome of the election.

    ''I commend INEC for a job well done. I give them 85 percent for their performance. I know they can improve on this in other elections coming up,'' he said.

    The NCP chairman congratulates Obaseki for the victory, urging him to improve on the lives of Edo people by avoiding anti-people's policies.
