Edo Govt To Akpata, Focus On Crises Within Your Party, Stop Dragging Us Into It

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Edo State government has told the governorship candidate of Labour Party, Olumide Akpata to focus on how to solve the crises rocking his party rather than dragging the name of the governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki into his problem.

The state governor, disclosed this through the Hon. Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Mr Chris Nehikhare, while reacting to the allegation that the governor was the brain behind the pulling down of his political campaign bill boards in the state.

He said that if Akpata has any issues with his billboards, he should find out from those leasing out the space and not the state governor.

“We acknowledge the concerns raised by Mr. Olumide Akpata regarding the removal of his campaign bill board.

“The Edo State Government condemns any form of vandalism and urges all parties involved to address such issues through proper channels.

“While we understand Mr. Akpata’s frustration, we encourage him to engage with the relevant agencies responsible for the management of signage to settle any outstanding bills or disputes.

“Threats of violence or disobedience have no place in our democratic process, and all parties should conduct themselves with decorum and respect for the law.

“It is essential that we focus on constructive dialogue and peaceful engagement rather than resorting to tactics that may incite division or unrest.

“The government remains committed to upholding the rule of law and will address any disruptive behaviour, regardless of one’s status or affiliation.

“We encourage Mr. Akpata to prioritize addressing the internal challenges within his party and work towards fostering unity and stability. Let us all strive to promote a peaceful and inclusive electoral process for the benefit of all citizens”, Nehikhare said.
