APC Edo State Media Campaign Council for the governorship election has made accusations against Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The media team accused the governor and his party, PDP, of unleashing violence on the people in Benin City.
The violence ensued after a confrontation in which angry youths booed the governor while trying to gain entrance into the palace of the Oba of Benin.
The Chairman of the Media Campaign Council, Mr. John Mayaki, in a statement said:
The Governor instructed his thugs to attack the people as retribution for their public booing of his arrival.
The youths booed him with various chants labeling him a thief and rejected candidate
It is sad that Obaseki, has, today, Saturday, July 25, displayed the same traits of intolerance and penchant for violence.
The violence that made the people of Edo State unanimously reject him.
Booed by the people at the entrance of the Palace of Oba for handing the State to PDP tax collectors.
The PDP who are unconscionably feasting on our collective patrimony.
Obaseki, as an act of revenge, instructed the thugs and cultists he has spent the past few weeks recruiting in the State and beyond to attack the people with dangerous arms.
This criminal and heartless action not only affirms our repeated warnings that Mr. Godwin Obaseki fully intends to prosecute the election with violence and thuggery.
it also shows his lack of empathy, conscience, and respect for the lives and dignity of the people.
His thugs have presently invaded the State Capital, unleashing mayhem to anyone perceived critical of the failed Governor or supportive of our party and candidate.
After converging at the venue of the Governor’s campaign flag-off, they have poured into the streets, vandalizing properties and causing panic. We have heard unconfirmed reports of fatal injuries.
Furthermore, as a way to avoid responsibility and expected sanction for the undemocratic and criminal destruction of our billboards, the Governor’s thugs are going around the city, deliberately pulling down their own billboards in an orchestrated gimmick meant to portray the false impression of “violence on both sides” when in truth, the desperate Governor, in cahoots with his PDP godfathers, are the ones threatening the peace of the State.
We condemn this action in totality and demand immediate intervention by the Police and other security agencies.
Our party, the APC, has built an effective campaign on the strength of our documented manifesto.
Tellingly, on the back of four years of no achievement, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has neither a plan nor record of office to show, hence the resort to violence and thuggery.
We call on the Inspector General of Police and all well-meaning Nigerians to immediately rein in on Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
Should begin the arrest of his recruited thugs who are committed to causing chaos and violence in a bid to prevent the people, who have already voiced their rejection of Obaseki, from participating in the election freely and without intimidation.
