The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has accused the leadership of the All Progressives Congress in the state of planning violence and importing arms to intimidate and harass his supporters as the September 19, 2020 gubernatorial election nears.

The governor, who said this while receiving Muslim leaders at the Government House in Benin City, expressed his readiness to stand with the people, defend their interests and develop the state.

Obaseki said: “I am not afraid of any man, but God.

“I know the gang up is to provoke me and my supporters, but we will not fall for their tricks as God will help us.

“As I speak to you now, you can’t imagine that Police from Abuja are already in the state and have been paid to arrest our supporters.

|They have been paid by a billionaire to arrest Peoples Democratic Party supporters in the state.

“This billionaire sponsored the attacks on me and other PDP governors at the Palace.

“This is to tell you the level of corruption and impunity we face.

“They are planning violence, bringing arms, intimidating our supporters as part of their strategy.

“They know that if we have a free and fair election, they stand no chance.

“Their strategy is to continue with their propaganda and lies.

“They know they don’t have a record of performance; their plan is just to intimidate our supporters and ensure they stay off the polling booth.

“They attacked my supporters and wanted me to react to the attacks.

“I will not attack them back because as the Chief Security Officer of the state, my responsibility is to maintain peace.

“We would continue to do that at all costs.”

Governor Obaseki assured Edo people that the developmental strides in the state had just begun as the first four year of his administration were used in laying the foundation which will be built on in the next four years
