Edo 2020: Obaseki Guarantees Violence-Free Election

Gov. Obaseki

The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has assured the people of Edo State that the electioneering process in the forthcoming gubernatorial election will be violent-free.

Obaseki, who is also the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming election, urged eligible voters in the state to come out en masse and vote for the PDP.

He outlined the successes of his first term in office, and asked electorates to vote him again to enable him consolidate on his achievements in the first term.

The Governor made the appeal while addressing party faithfuls during his reelection campaign rally in Urhonigbe wards 7 and 8, Orhionmwon Local Government Area.

Obaseki charged the electorate not to be deterred by intimidation or harassment to vote and stay back to defend their votes.

He promised to create a new economy because the state cannot continue to rely on crude oil.

Obaseki said, “Come out and vote, don’t be afraid as there would be no violence; nobody will fight on that day, come out and vote. I am assuring you as the Chief Security Officer of the state that there will be no violence in Edo during this election. We all made a promise at the palace of His Royal Majesty, Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, that there would be no violence during this election.

“Vote for the PDP and stay back to defend your votes so that your votes will count and when I come back as governor, Urhonigbe Community will receive more attention from my administration.

“We started a rubber plantation in Urhonigbe about a year ago as we have to create jobs for our young ones; we have to create a new economy as we cannot continue relying on crude oil. This election will determine if we will continue to do things that will move us forward or allow all those people who put us where we are, to come back, but God forbid!

“I know your problems here; look at the gully erosion ravaging some parts of this place. I saw it with my eyes and I have to do something about it.”
