Exactly eight days to the rescheduled date, some political parties in Edo State are again pushing for a shift of the state governorship election.

A report this morning by The Guardian said that five political parties have written to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), asking that the polls be shifted to October 8.
According to the report, among the parties is the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), whose candidate, Osaro Onaiwu, had said he would prefer a shift to either October 1 or 8.
Others include the African Congress of Democrats (ACD), the People for Democratic Change (PDC), the Alliance Congress Party of Nigeria (APPN) and KOWA.
The INEC spokeswoman, Mrs. Priscillia Imoudu-Sule, confirmed the development to The Guardian yesterday.
She said: “We received a letter from four political parties asking for a shift, but that is not our duty. So we have forwarded the letter to the headquarters in Abuja, while we continue our preparation for the election fixed for September 28th.”
The Guardian said it learnt that some other parties, which complained of inadequate funds wanted the date brought backward to September 24.
