Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, yesterday, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was afraid of the use of Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, in the forthcoming election because the PVC would expose their alleged rigging methods and stop electoral fraud.
Speaking while receiving over 2,000 PDP members, led by Chief Sunny Omokaro, Chairman, Edo State Butchers Association and Chief Peter Osagie, Afesoba of Benin Kingdom, who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, at Government House, Oshiomhole said the use of PVCs will ensure free and credible polls.
He said: “You can see they are running away from card readers like armed robbers running away from police detectives. They hate the card reader. The elections must hold and the card readers must be used. Electoral fraud must come to an end.
“The Nigerian people must be the masters of their own game, using the one man one vote mantra. Those who have lived on electoral fraud are now being retrenched by the new technology. But let me ask you to watch out because right now, they take advantage of the very people they have impoverished to buy their cards. They can do everything but they cannot stop their defeat.
