The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare the 11, has appealed to the political parties participating in the Edo state governorship 2020 election to go about their campaigns peacefully.

The royal father made the call when he received a delegation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on a courtesy visit at his Palace in Benin on Saturday.

The APC delegation, led by Yobe Governor, Mai Mala Buni, was in Benin for the official flag-off of the party’s campaign for its Edo 2020 Gubernatorial candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

The Oba expressed sadness at the recent happenings in the state, adding that the Palace is not happy.

He called on everyone in the state to pray for a peaceful Edo election.

Oba Ewuare also reiterated that he remained non-partisan and had never supported any political candidate.

“There is nothing as powerful as prayers.

“As you go about your campaign, go about it peacefully and without bitterness,” the monarch said.

“The Palace remains non-partisan because of the laid down rules of our ancestors; we must be fathers to all.

“We see every candidate as our child and we pray for everybody. It is wiser to leave the fate of the election to God.

The monarch added that he is not against any candidate, “I have never been for or against any candidate but when the people have chosen via the election, we will pray for him to succeed in office.’’

Speaking on behalf of the delegation, the Yobe Governor and Chairman, APC National Caretaker Committee, said the visit was to present the Edo 2020 APC governorship candidate to the royal majesty for his blessings, NAN reports.

Buni was optimistic that APC would reclaim the state come Sept. 19
