The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said that he would not govern on the blood of his people. Speaking to a cross section of journalists in Lagos on Sunday, the APC governorship hopeful reiterated that he would rather not contest for governorship than to have many people killed in Edo State because of election.

Against the backdrop of the Edo State governorship election, which was postponed from September 10 to 28, by the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), Mr. Obaseki said “we were ready for the elections, but when the police belatedly raised the issue of security, there is nothing we could do. I will rather not be a governor than to have the blood of many people shed by miscreants that were imported into Edo State to cause havoc”, he said.
