BENIN CITY – As the nation prepares to go to the polls on Saturday for the 2015 Presidential and National Assembly elections, youths in Edo State have been charged not to allow themselves to be used by desperate politicians to perpetrate violence during and after the polls.
The charge was given in Benin City yesterday by the Edo State Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Osakpamwan Eriyo (aka No molest) while exchanging views with newsmen.
Comrade Osakpamwan stated that there was a desperation on the part of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to continue to foist itself in government at the federal level against the overwhelming demand for change by Nigerians.
The Edo APC youth Leader stated the 2015 general elections would mark a turning in Nigeria’s political evolution as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given indication to organise free, fair and credible elections.
He called on youths in the state not to be hoodwinked by the antics of desperate politicians with monetary inducement to foment trouble at the polls.
Comrade Osakpamwan noted that All Progressives Congress was at the threshold of victory at polls, adding Nigerians are yearning for change which the party symbolises.
He appealed to the electorate to look beyond monetary inducement and vote wisely for the APC presidential flagbearer, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and all the party’s candidates across Edo State.
“My advice is that our youths in Edo State should not allow desperate politicians to use them to cause trouble at the polls.
“I am also appealing to the electorate in Edo State to reciprocate the good work which the Comrade governor has done for the state in the past six years by voting massively for the APC in this election”, Comrade Eriyo stated.
