THE DESECRATION OF THE TRADITIONAL INSTITUTION BY AGENTS OF BOTH THE PDP AND APC IN EDO STATE ON STAURDAY JULY 25, 2020. A PRESS RELEASE BY PASTOR PETERS OSAWARU OMORAGBON-GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE, EDO 2020 OF THE NATIONAL CONSCIENCE PARTY, JULY 26, 2020.
The entire ancient city of Benin was exposed to the shameful conduct and orgy of violence as perpetrated by agents of the People’s Democratic Party and the All Peoples’ Congress around the Oba Palace on Saturday 25 July, 2020.
As one of the Governorship Candidate in the forthcoming election under the National Conscience Party, I condemn in its entirety the show of shame by these two rabid political parties as represented by both Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu and Mr Godwin Obaseki. This singular act of lawlessness has demonstrated the similarity of both parties in their definition of change-which is violence. I do not condemn the innocent young men and women enticed with two thousand naira to chorus obscenity before the Palace, but I condemn the leadership of both parties. This is an addition to the insecurity of lives and properties in the state since 1999.
The root cause of insecurity of lives and properties is largely economic and it is particularly occasioned by lack of access to a welfare program. Economic hardship pushes many honest people into all sorts of crimes. The state of insecurity is compounded by executive lawlessness. The degree of state terrorism tends to make the experience under military dictatorship to pale into insignificance. Cult related violence is on the increase. Assassins unleash a reign of terror on their victims. Kidnapping that is politically motivated is of daily occurrence. This has been the case since May 29, 1999, (UNDER BOTH PDP AND APC LED GOVERNMENTS) and yet agents of both PDP and APC appear not to be relenting because of their desperation to rule Edo state at the expense of the lives of innocent Edo sons and daughters.
As a result of the above, the people of Edo state still have the opportunity to reject these two political parties and vote the National Conscience Party as represented by my humble self-Pastor Peters Osawaru OMORAGBON, (RPN, RN). The NCP under my watch in Edo State will be committed to governance to meet the basic needs of the people . To me, the measures of development are the material upliftment of the people. Our concept of a great nation is great people who are not burdened by lack of food, lack of water, lack of good health, lack of comfortable homes, lack of education, lack of electricity, lack of access to telecommunication services, lack of means of transportation and lack of security of lives and property with the devastating effects of environmental hazards brought about by massive erosion and flooding with improper drainage system.
The above measures known as our TEN CARE plus ONE Program are my bond with the people of Edo State. With this, we can MAKE EDO STATE GREAT AGAIN.
