APC gubernatorial candidate in Edo, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has come out to say that his party has been peaceful during its campaigns across the state thus far.
He recently revealed that he would never be involved in any violence during the campaigns because peace is all the party preaches.
According to him, the violence during the PDP rally in Etsako-West is very sad and the destruction plus shootings are very unnecessary.
He added that APC does not believe in violence and the party will never encourage its members to be violent.
His words, “We heard of so much violence during the PDP rally in Etsako-West and they are accusing us for the destruction and shooting, saying saying APC is causing trouble.
“We did not go near their activities, we did not destroy any of their billboards and have no hands in any of the violence that took place at their rally.
“We don’t believe in violence and have no intention to encourage our members to be violent.
“We have eyewitnesses of people who committed the act at Apana, Etsako-West.
“There is no time that we, or our followers have destroyed property belonging to the opposition parties.
“We have been the ones that have complained about destruction of our campaign billboards.”
