Few days to the presidential election, Edo State Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Osakpanwa Eriyo has urged youths of Edo State not to make themselves willing tools to desperate politicians in the state who may want to perpetrate violence during and after the elections.
The APC Youth leader, who gave the advice Tuesday in a chat with newsmen, appealed to security agents, including the police in the state to be vigilant, just as he raised alarm of alleged plot by the Peoples, Democratic Party, PDP, in the state to unleash mayhem on APC members with a view to arresting key leaders of the APC.
Eriyo decried PDP’s desperation to return President Goodluck Jonathan by all means.
”And that is why I am appealing to our youths in Edo State to eschew any violent conduct. I am appealing to security agents to remain neutral. They should only arrest anybody trying to cause trouble during and after elections.
“Our youths must play according to the rules, they should reject any offer to go and kill or help rig election. Any politician that tells any youth to go and rig election, tell that politician to tell he or her children to do it. We must resist the offer of money and vote for who will secure our future” he stated.
While urging the people to vote for Gen.Muhammadu Buhari, Osakpanwa asserted that the people of the state have suffered under the PDP-led Federal Government therefore declared that “we are going to vote for Buhari since President Jonathan who we all voted for in 2011 as our brother abandoned us”
