National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Chief John OdigieÂ Oyegun has arrived in Benin, Edo State capital ahead ofÂ Saturdayâ€™sÂ governorship primary election.Also, the Chairman of the primary election committee and Katsina StateÂ Governor, Alhaji Bello Masari has also arrived for the event scheduledÂ to hold inside the main bowl of Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.
Chairman of the stateâ€™s chapter of the Coalition of RegisteredÂ Political Parties CRPP, Dr Samson Isibor, Edo chairman, coalition ofÂ Registered Political Party (CRPP) has appealed to the leadership of
the APC to deploy security personnel outside Edo to ensure a hitchÂ free outingÂ on Saturday.
Isibor made this call in BeninÂ on Thursday, adding that the callÂ became necessary against the wide spread allegation that securityÂ personnel in the state may have been compromised to secure victory for
a particular aspirant.
â€œIn the case of the APC governorship primaries in Edo, we are callingÂ for the same thing because; we have gotten wind of plan by someÂ persons to scuttle the process if their candidate is not having his
way in the primaries.
â€œAgain, this is another of their strategy after their plan of Â preventing some delegates, through mopping of Permanent Voters CardÂ (PVC), have been scuttled.
â€œDeployment of security of personnel outside the state will ensure Â neutrality and fairness from the angle of security,â€ he stated.
On the issue of postmen, Isibor said, â€œWe also have it on goodÂ authority of the plan to create problems that will see to theÂ postponement of the primaries. We are calling on the leadership of theÂ not to fall for this antics.â€
