The statement, signed by the Director-General of the Godwin Obaseki campaign organisation, Osarodion Ogie, also said that many of the billboards and posters of Godwin Obaseki around Sapele Road and Ikpoba Hill were destroyed by the agents of the PDP between Friday night and Saturday morning.
Ogie said: “We are alerting security agents to watch out for these people because we are ready for a peaceful election. They intend to coerce us into violence, but we will not. Edo will be calm for this election, because we have no opposition.
“PDP leaders should be warned. They must stop destroying our posters for the interest of peace. They should know that nobody has monopoly of violence, but we will continue to remain calm, because victory is sure.”
