If media reports on the local government election held in Edo State over the weekend are anything to go by, it is obvious the election was a rape of democracy as voting materials were delayed till 4pm in many voting centres and result sheets allegedly disappearing and reappearing at will. In some centres, agitated youths came to protest the decision by the Edo State Independent Electoral Commission to hold accreditation and election from 5pm, which ordinarily take a whole day. It is a shame that the state government through EDSIEC was not able to conduct a credible election in the state with all its democratic pretentions.
