Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has dissuaded people from using violence or fanning ethnic sentiments to get into public office.
The governor, speaking at a Warri North Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Local Government rally, said such actions would not yield these politicians the desired result.
“Resorting to violence or ethnic sentiments to achieve aspirant office holders their goal through force and violence does not get anyone into office but only breeds chaos and anarchy in society,” Uduaghan said during the event organised by the ruling party.
He urged the aspirants to endear themselves to the people by their words, deeds and actions, reiterating that whoever will emerge winner in an election must do so through the ballot box and not because of the ethnic group they belong.
According to him, power belongs to God Almighty.
“No matter the violence one employed or the ethnic sentiments resorted to, whoever God decides emerges winner at the end of the day,” the Delta premier said.
