Edo 2020: Tight security as APC, PDP hold rallies in Benin

There was tight security Saturday around parts of Benin City and social activities disrupted because of gridlock as the two dominant political parties: the People’s Democratic Party, PDP and the All Progressives Congress APC, held rallies in Benin City.

While the PDP held its rally at Urokpota Hall open ground which created gridlock around Ring Road and adjourning roads, the APC held its own at the Ekheuan Campus of the University of Benin and this also resulted into traffic around Ekheuan Road and adjourning streets.

He also urged residents of the State to call dedicated phone lines whenever they are in distressed ahead of the September 19, 2020 Governorship election in the State.

“Do not be afraid, we are more than them. They cannot overpower us.

“We will tell them that Edo is not a lawless State”, he said.

The governor said the ward-to-ward campaign embarked upon by his party is designed for assessing the needs of Edo people at the community level, in order to bring more impactful projects closer to the people.
