The Deputy General of the Godwin Obaseki campaign organization, John Osakue has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is planning to assassinate the APC guber candidate, Godwin Obaseki.

Osakue also said the PDP is producing fake military and para-military uniforms to be used during the governorship election on September 28, 2016.

He said “As often as the APC inspires confidence in the political space, so on the other hand, the PDP sows fear and this is threatening to roll back the progress made politically and economically.”

“Edo people fret that politics is being drawn into another downturn and citizens keep guessing the next line of action by the PDP, since they won’t run out of destructive, outdated and unfashionable political ammunition.

“The time has come for Edo to save their future and they have to fight to secure it. The sheer recklessness of the PDP has led the state to this stage of heightened tension.

“The PDP is not only taking extreme actions, particularly in the most benighted political environments, they have included and deployed risky tools.

“For us, with room to lead this emancipation, have held back and would not degenerate to their level but we do know that a combined united progressives would pack more of a punch on this full-blown retrogressives to free politics from desperadoes and move Edo state forwards together.

“In spite of this intimidation by the PDP, we remain poised to win the election.

“We urge you to be law abiding as you go out enmasse to vote for the APC and Godwin Obaseki.”

The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Finihan Adeoye has been sacked for reportedly holding a secret meeting in Chief Gabriel Igbinedion's home.
