Governorship candidate of the APC, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, while speaking to newsmen yesterday, said that the People’s democratic party(PDP) has hired militants from Rivers state to cause havoc in the upcoming Edo state elections.According to him;
“We know that the PDP is working with the guys that created the havoc in Rivers State, the killings there. We have told security agencies; we know that they have recruited many of them. You know we are campaigning in riverine areas, and those are the areas they are targeting. Places like llusin, Gelelege, our borders are the areas they intend to perpetuate violence, and there is evidence they have brought in people in Oredo, Egor, and Ikpoba Okhai.
“They planted at least two militants each from the Niger Delta in each of the units in these metropolitan areas so that they can cause mayhem and cause confusion that may lead to inconclusive elections. But we have told security agents. The PDP has no message to give, so they want violence but we will not allow them.They are masters of propaganda, while we are campaigning the PDP leaders are using the money they stole for propaganda, so their propaganda machine is well oiled, misinforming people, most of their proposed theory is to deceive people, giving them false impression that they are winning.”
