Voters Registration: Benin leaders raise alarm over alleged marginalization

The Benin Leaders of Thought (BLT), made up of Benin traditional rulers and politicians, have raised an alarm over alleged plot by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to manipulate the forthcoming voters registration exercise in the state by ensuring that majority of Benin eligible voters are unable to obtain the permanent voter’s card.

The group led by the Enogie of Obazuwa and younger brother to the Benin monarch, Oba of Benin, Prince Edun Akenzua, traced the none presence of a Benin man in the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan allegedly to the activities of some leaders of the PDP in the state whom the group described as “anti Benins”, adding that the alleged desperation by the PDP to take over the leadership of the state was targeted at the Benins and not the Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

According to the BLT, “PDP leadership is desperate to “capture” Edo State and install a governor from Edo Central. They would have done it through the declaration of a state of emergency, but found out that imposing a state of emergency on a State whose government is doing well and who has a governor loved by the State’s traditional institutions, market women and the people would lead to what no one could conjecture.
