Adams Oshiomhole, outgoing governor of Edo state, says Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in last week’s governorship election, is not worth 50,000 votes.

Ize-Iyamu, who lost the election to Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC), polled 253,173 votes, while Obaseki polled 319,483 votes.

Speaking while leading a counter-protest after PDP’s demonstration on Tuesday that the election was rigged, Oshiomhole dared the losers to go to court.

“We encourage our opponents to go to court. We will expose them where it matters in our court rooms,” he said.

“We will be able to use evidence to show how much they profited from electoral fraud. The Ize-Iyamu I know is not worth 50,000 votes.

“Their case is like an armed robber with bullet wounds rushing to the police station, claiming that he had been shot, whereas he was the one who opened fire on very innocent people.

“I am happy that the political funeral of the godfathers is final. There is nothing they can do to turn the will of God. So, this is our finest hour and I can’t wait to meet them in court.”

The PDP rejected the result before it was officially declared.

It accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of conniving with the APC to rig the election.
