#EdoDecides2020: How America Helped Obaseki To Defeat Ize-Iyamu, Says Adegboruwa—A Nigerian activist in the person of Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN) has on Tuesday said that the United State and the European Union was responsble for the outcome of the just concluded governorship election in Edo State.
Adegboruwa explained that the U.S. recent visa ban worked in favour of Obaseki as some top politician didn’t want to engage in electoral malpractices and suffer the same fate as those involved in the Kogi and Bayelsa States election.
He also attributed the relative peace and lack of bloodshed during the election to the visa ban threat.
The senior lawyer also commended President Muhammadu Buhari over the outcome of the election and applauded the people of Edo State for their vigilance during the just concluded gubernatorial election in the state.
In his “My Take on Edo Election”, he said:
“Edo Election was determined by the US, EU and the western powers. As simple as that. Whoever they favour will always carry the day.
“Our leaders are scared to be placed under visa restrictions, where they may not be able to access their loot and have opportunity for good medical treatment.
“This is what has led to peace in Edo.
“If America and the Western powers want it, election in Nigeria will always be free.
“Secondly, whether we agree or not, President Buhari has also shown himself to be a good leader, in allowing the will of the people to prevail.
“Above it all, we salute the courage of the Edo electorate, very enlightened and vigilant.”
