The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to ensure a fair and peaceful process in the September 19 governorship election in the state.
Vice-Chairman, Communication and Publicity of the APC National Campaign Council, Mr Patrick Obahiagbon, gave the advice on Friday at a news conference in Abuja.
According to Obahiagbon, nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any Edo resident.
“The protection of the integrity of the Edo Governorship election from the brooding and sprawling violence is a collective obligation.
“This must be shared by all well-meaning citizens and groups interested in the survival of democracy and the constitutional rights and freedom of the people to determine the leadership of their state and their representatives in government,” he said.
He urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led-government in Edo to uphold the rule of law, democratic ethics and constitutionalism to ensure peaceful conduct of the election in the state.
