A petition appealing to the President of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari not to interfere in the Edo State Election.
This is a call from every well-meaning Edo State indigene across Party divide to think of the lives of their loved ones before politics.
No political ambition of any man is worth the blood of another.
We, the Nigerian citizens of Edo State extraction residents in the United Kingdom are appealing to the British Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson and other world leaders to appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to allow Edo State indigenes to determine who governs them.
The interference of any external agencies in the Edo State Election may be a recipe for disaster and likely loss of innocent lives, which will be a costly mistake.
A taste of how bloody this interference will be was felt on Saturday 25 July when the State ruling party visited the Oba of Benin at the start of their campaign flagged off.
Thugs unleashed mayhem on guests, destroyed vehicles, and shot sporadically in the air.
Another bitter scenario was the reported attack on the State main opposition party in Edo North during their campaigns.
We don’t want a breakdown of law and order in our State.
This is not about party loyalty rather loyalty to life.
We are asking the British Government and other world leaders to appeal, on our behalf, to the Federal Government of Nigeria to allow Edo people decide who governs them.
Let Edo Decide.
