Godwin Obaseki, the executive Governor of Edo State has prayed to God to let him lose Saturday’s governorship poll “if it will cost the blood of anybody”.

Governor Obaseki, who want re-election under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for his second term ambition is not worth spilling the blood of any citizen.

Obaseki expressed these in a statement titled, ‘My reelection not worth spilling of blood – Obaseki’ and signed by Crusoe Osagie, his Special Assistant on Media.

The Governor, whose strong opponent is Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), pleaded voters to come out en masse to vote for their candidate, without any afra of timid or torment.

The statement read in parts: “Election should not be one in which we shed blood because the election will always come. If you die in an election, you will not be there in the next one to vote. So, there is no need for violence.

“There is no need for any violence and if anybody decides to act in a violent manner just walk away because our lives are very precious. I have a covenant with God; if it will cost the blood of anybody for me to get into power, he should not let me have power".
