Edo 2020: Nnamdi Kanu reacts to Obaseki’s victory

1 Mins read

Kanu believes a free and fair election in Edo State became possible because of the threat of visa ban recently made by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have explained why Saturday’s election in Edo State was judged free and fair.

Incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki returned elected on Saturday, defeating Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Kanu believes a free and fair election in Edo State became possible because of the threat of visa ban recently made by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Last Monday, the US government announced the ban on some Nigerians, who undermined the country’s democracy by involving in election rigging.

And displaying Mrs Leonard’s picture on his Facebook page, the IPOB leader said, “This is the courageous US Ambassador to Nigeria that delivered the first truly free and fair elections in the history of Nigeria in Edo State yesterday. Something the EU & UK have failed to do for over 60 years.

“This amazing woman imposed an ordinary visa ban on perennial election riggers and they quickly behaved themselves. Add a bit of Nyesom Wike and the tenacity of Igodomigodo and you have the perfect result.”
