Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki says he has made a covenant with God not to spill anybody’s blood in his quest for victory at the oncoming Edo State Governorship election.
He made this known in a statement titled, ‘My reelection not worth spilling of blood – Obaseki’ and signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Crusoe Osagie.
Godwin Obaseki says has asked God to let him lose Saturday’s governorship election “if it will cost the blood of anybody”.
“Election should not be one in which we shed blood because the election will always come. If you die in an election, you will not be there in the next one to vote. So, there is no need for violence.
“There is no need for any violence and if anybody decides to act in a violent manner just walk away because our lives are very precious. I have a covenant with God; if it will cost the blood of anybody for me to get into power, he should not let me have power,” the statement read in parts.
