The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole told security agencies on Tuesday to arrest any trouble marker that will interrupt the election process in the Edo State governorship polls scheduled for September 19.
Oshiomhole challenged the security agencies to arrest anybody that foments trouble during the election, whether they are members of his party (APC) or they are members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“The outgoing governor is talking more about violence, you must have watched him on Channels television where he said he will meet violence for violence and we are saying no, there will be no violence. It will be like celebrating Christmas or you are going to do a plebiscite between MoU, which Edo people have now codenamed.
“Memorandum of Underdevelopment and a governor with a clear simple agenda, which is the product of his brain. We have just found out that MoUs are only celebrated by consultants. They are not celebrated by real people,” he said.
It would be recalled that Oshiomhole also reacted to the accusations that he was plotting to come back as National Chairman of the party, after meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday at Presidential Villa, Abuja. Stating he was not interested in re-contesting for the position.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that a total of 2,210,534 people have been registered to partake in the forthcoming Edo elections.
