Awka – The Governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic People (PDP) in the November 18 Governorship election in Anambra state Mr. Oseloka H. Obaze, the flagbearer of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the Anambra governorship election has said that he is totally committed to peaceful elections, saying that the forthcoming election is not a do-or-die affair.
Addressing journalists at his campaign headquarters in Awka Tuesday, Obaze said the whole society will suffer if democratic processes are allowed to degenerate into violence.
He, however, solicited for votes saying: “I need your votes so that we can embark on the process of rebuilding Anambra state.
“Anambra state deserves better. Presently, it is badly broken, we need to fix it. I ask you to go and cast your votes for PDP. While you do that, I ask you also to do so peacefully. No hate speeches, no mud slinging, and no violence. It does not augur well for us to engage in any form of violence.
“Democracy is a peaceful process, not a do or die affair. Come November 18, go out there and cast your votes for me. And please, do so peacefully”, he said.
Obaze said that he totally committed to playing the game by the rules and has committed himself to honouring the results of the election.
He added: “If at the end of the day, Ndi Anambra, in their wisdom, decide to cast their votes in favour of any of my co-contestants, including the incumbent, I will congratulate the winner and move on.
“On the other hand, if I win, I hope the other candidates will treat me with that same attitude of sportsmanship. To me, it’s not a do-or-die affair. I’m in this because I sincerely believe that Anambra deserves better than it currently gets, but the ultimate decision lies in the hands of the electorate.
Obaze reminded the voters that he has served the state as the Secretary to the State Government and his records while serving in that capacity are in the public domain.
He re-emphasized his manifesto of prioritized education and human capital development of our people.
He restated his resolve to serve only one term.
