He, however, expressed hope of victory, saying the lives of PDP chieftains and members are in danger should APC ride to power again after the September 19 election.

“The electoral battle may not be easy. But God is with us. With the people also on the ground, we will win.

“Let me tell you, God forbid that APC wins; if they do, all of you here would have failed because your political life will be in jeopardy.

“This is an opportunity for you to fight for the liberation of Edo State. You must all say enough is enough. One man should not be allowed to continue to insult Edo people.

Meanwhile, with less than twenty-four hours to the conduct of the Edo state governorship election, Umar Sani, a former special assistant on media and publicity to ex-Nigeria's vice president, Namadi Sambo, has predicted the outcome of the poll.

In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, Sani said the candidate of the PDP, Godwin Obaseki, would be victorious at the poll if the federal might is not used to upturn the election in favour of the APC and its candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, on Saturday, September 1.
