After the PDP’s stakeholders’ meeting in Benin City, I reiterated my administration’s resolve to ensure a violence-free electioneering in Edo State. As a Governor, I will use state powers with discretion and moderation. I am not weak as a Governor but I believe in respecting human rights.
My administration is doing all within the ambits of the law to ensure that perpetrators of the attacks on PDP supporters in front of the palace of the Oba of Benin are apprehended and made to face the full wrath of the law.
I believe my powers as a governor should be used responsibly, particularly in the face of provocation, and especially what the other party did in the palace by attacking our supporters in an attempt to provoke me.
As a PDP state, I’m confident that our party will win the forthcoming election. If we have an election today in the state, PDP will win by 75 per cent. PDP has always won every national election in Edo State.
