Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has described the peace pact signed on Tuesday in Benin as unique, while pledging his commitment to ensure peace during the election.

“Today (yesterday) is unique, as history is being made in Edo State, where we are having members of the National Peace Committee coming ahead of a major event, the election of September 19, to get all the contestants to sign a peace accord to ensure that there is a violence-free election on that date “I want to commit publicly, once again, that I will live by the letter and spirit of the accord that has just been signed,” Obaseki said.

Also, candidate of the APC in the election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, said, “We assure Nigerians and particularly our people in Edo State, that we will talk to all our supporters and we will conduct ourselves peacefully.”

We will do our best to ensure that the election is peaceful. We support a free, fair and credible election. We believe that is the only way that we can sustain our democracy.”
