Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State yesterday said the 2015 general elections will not be fair judging by the controversy that followed the election of a chairman by the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) were only 35 people participated.
Oshiomhole stated this at the International Conference Centre Abuja during the opening of the 9th Triennial Delegates Conference of the Trade Union Conference (TUC) where he narrated what transpired at the NGF election.
Governor David Jang of Plateau State and Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State claimed victory in the said election which has divided the governors into two camps.
Oshiomhole, who urged workers to take a stand and participate in the 2015 general elections said “this matter is serious; it is not about the Governor’s Forum; it is about democracy and I need you to know the implication if you don’t know.
“If we can dispute or contest whether 16 is majority over 19 in a small election, are you then expecting that 2015 election will be free and fair? Do you need to get there before you see it? The time to fight it is now!
It is today not tomorrow. It is about you not about them,” the governor queried.
