Gov. Godwin Obaseki, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Edo has urged all eligible voters in the state to ensure they turn out on election day to cast their votes.
The governor said low turnout of eligible voters on election day was responsible for Oredo Local Government Area of the state’s loss of its political value.
Obaseki stated this while addressing a crowd of PDP supporters in Ward 6 and Ward 7 of Oredo on Saturday in Benin.
In this Ward 6 and Ward 7 we have almost 50,000 registered voters here, but we don’t have 15,000 on election day.
“So, opposition thinks we don’t have power, they think we don’t have political value, this has been the norm, so in this election I want us to change this narrative.
