Edo APC To Boycott Local Government Election, Cogitates Legal Action

Edo chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday, stated it has concluded plans to boycott the upcoming local government election in the state.

Peter Uwadiae, publicity secretary, disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen in Benin as regards the position of the party.

Uwadiae said APC cannot be seen indulging in illegality all in the name of participating in a local government council election.

He alleged that the government has fixed the date for a local government election to be conducted in the state but failed to make budgetary allocation for its conduct.

“By the provisions of the constitution, before you can use any kobo that the taxpayers have paid into the coffer of Edo State government today, it must be voted for via the budget.

“Today, as we speak, the provisions of this year’s budget, there is nowhere that money is voted for election to the councils in 2022. So, where is the government going to get the money to finance this election?”
