Opinion: Why IGP ordered Wike out of Edo State but Allowed Kano State Governor

The Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed had earlier ordered River State Governor out of Edo State ahead of the Edo State Governorship Election which held today.

This has raised an eyebrow as to why the IGP should want to send Governor Wike, (PDP) away but allow Governor Ganduje (APC) to stay.

Governor Ganduje of Kano State landed Edo on an official assignment in the Presidential jet of which many Nigerian’s and CSO’s had totally condemned.

It can be recalled that several reports of the Hotel where Governor Nyesom Wike lodged were heavily guarded by over 300 armed policemen.

During the Kogi state 2019 Governorship Election, Governor Makinde of Oyo State was almost kidnapped a day to the Governorship Election.

The 2 reasons for such an act are:

  1. The IGP does not just give orders like that, it must come from a higher authority most likely the Presidency.

The APC wants to win Edo State else there will have no state in the South for the 2023 General elections.

  1. All Progressive Congress wants to win the election at all costs and Governor Wike appears to be an obstacle to the success of their mission. So the best way out is to order Governor Wike out of the state.
  2. The APC is the ruling party and this is a clear example of Federal Might expressed in the Edo Governorship Election.

The election in Edo is over and the results are currently being Collated by INEC.

This sparks a question, Can APC really win this election? Let’s get to hear your take on this issue through the comment section, kindly share this post with your friends and do follow us for more updates.
