Edo 2020: God let me lose "if it will take innocent lives" — Obaseki

Edo 2020: God let me lose "if it will take innocent lives" —  Obaseki

The Edo State Governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said his second term ambition is not worth spilling the blood of anyone.

 He specifically asked God to let him lose his re-election bid “if it will cost the blood of anybody.”

The governor reassured that the Saturday’s governorship election in the state would be peaceful and violence-free.

 A statement quoted him as speaking after a one-day prayer and fasting session for a peaceful election, organised by the Edo Christian Community for all the governorship candidates ahead of the election.

The statement was titled, ‘My reelection not worth spilling of blood – Obaseki’, and sent by Obaseki’s Special Assistant on Media, Crusoe Osagie.

 Obaseki urged eligible voters to come out en masse without fear of intimidation or harassment.

 The governor noted that there was no need for any form of violence during the electioneering process. 

He said, “Ordinarily, an election is supposed to be a contest where people go to sell their ideal, and citizens in their own free will go and vote for those ideals they believe in; it shouldn’t be one where people will do anything to get power.

 “Election should not be one in which we shed blood because the election will always come.

 If you die in an election, you will not be there in the next one to vote. So, there is no need for violence.
