Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC of stirring controversy to the intent of postponing the governorship election because of the fear of defeat.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, the governor affirmed that “Edo State is peaceful, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is committed to enduring peace before, during and after the poll.”
The governor’s aide added: “APC leaders and gubernatorial candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu are agitated because they are not ready for the election. They are convinced that they do not stand any chance in the forthcoming election.
“They are behaving like some unserious and misguided university students who do not read, and when faced with examinations, they engage in anti-cult fights few weeks to the examination, so that the school authority will shift the examination.”
He emphasized that “Edo State is peaceful as people are going about their businesses peacefully,” urging the APC candidate and his handlers to concentrate on their campaign.
