The immediate past Senate President of Nigeria, Dr Bukola Saraki, has urged voters in Edo State to protect their votes in the Saturday governorship election, even as the polls get into what he terms a “critical stage”.

In a series of tweets on Saturday,  Dr. Saraki stated that  “the enthusiasm and patriotic conduct of the good people of Edo State must not be thwarted or subverted by any @inecnigeria official, either permanent or ad-hoc; or any security personnel, no matter the rank.

“Nigeria’s glory is more important than the huge ego of politicians. And so @inecnigeria  and security officials must work to protect Nigeria’s image and not to satisfy the whims and caprices of some power-hungry politicians.”

Saraki’s tweets come after voting was concluded at many units across the state, in an election that has been trailed by mixed reactions.

There are many who say the election was very peaceful and can be used as a yardstick for other elections, but there are others who insist that vote-buying and other electoral malpractices marred the exercise.
