Edo2020: 'Spare No Troublemaker During Poll' Oshiomhole Charges Security Agencies
The immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has challenged security agencies in the country to arrest any trouble maker in the September 19, Edo State governorship election, whether they are members of his APC or the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Oshiomhole, said this while briefing the State House correspondents after meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday.
He alleged that the outgoing governor is talking more about violence on Channels television where he said he will meet violence for violence and we are saying no, there will be no violence.
The former governor then charged the security agencies to arrest anybody that foments trouble during the September 19 Edo governorship election.
On his meeting with the president, he said that he told Mr. President that all is needed is good security and that if an APC man commits an offence, it should be arrested; likewise if a PDP man commits an offence, it should be arrested. He added that no one should be spared if found involved in unlawful possession of firearms or what have you.
Yesterday was the first time Oshiomhole meet Buhari after been removed as the National Chairman of the ruling party, APC.
